My mum had a birthday on the weekend so to get me inspired to create her card I used the layout from the sketch at Cardabilities and combined it with the colour challenge at Inspired by Stamping. Here are their inspiration pics:
The flap at the top of the sketch gave me the idea to create a pocket so I could stash some money in there as part of her present (just in case she wanted to buy some Stampin’ Up! products!). The flowers I’ve used are from Everything Eleanor and the leaves are from Summer Silhouettes. I’ve added a bit of washi from Stampin’ Up!s Tape It and the sentiment is from Express Yourself. The honeycomb background is something I learnt how to create at convention. Something I’ve never done before is ink up an embossing folder and used it as a stamp. I love this effect so I know I’ll be doing it again.
Thanks for stopping by.
