A fond Farewell card

Hello to all my new followers.  I'm thrilled that I've gathered so many over the past few weeks!  Thank you.

This card was one I made as a farewell card for a fabulous lady who worked in one of my teams at work.  She is a crafter herself so it's always daunting to be creating for someone who also creates.


The background is watercolour paper spritzed with my new collection of Starburst mica sprays, such a glorious shimmer to these colours.  Once this was dry, I then ran it through the bigshot with an embossing folder to give some texture. I cut this gorgeous Cheery Lynn flourish die and then popped some multicoloured roses on the die.

I wanted the card to be just a little different so layered the background on black then mustart and then cherry card and punched the scalloped border on the edge, as you can see in the next photo, the inside is layered with mustard and black to create the border where I added black rhinestones between the scallops.  I'm really happy with the design of this one.

I'm entering this into the following challenges.

Anything Goes - Make your own background
Make it Monday - Anything Goes.

Cheers,

    1. Hi Andrea, the background has been made using starburst sprays, they are amazing, I don't think I could have achieved the same effect with sponging. Thanks so much for your lovely comment.
