Beautiful Nature

I feel like it's been an eternity since I made a card!
But lookie what I made today..after hours of looking for my snail adhesive. I tell you I only find things when I'm not looking for them lol.

Anyway this stamp has been on my wish list for ages! And this is the first of many cards with it I'm sure.

Sponging directly on the stamp: Regal rose, Rose red, Bravo burgundy and Garden green. The edges were sponged with Pretty in pink while still in the die to get the border.

The background dots are done with a Stampin Up Perfect polka dots embossing folder on Riding hood red cardstock. I then painted over, waited for it to dry and sanded the dots to bring the colour back through and mounted on Pretty in pink...what do ya think?

King for a day!

Sorry it's taken me soo long to post. Two new jobs and two birthdays this week. My wonderful partner had his birthday on tuesday and it was my son's 7th birthday yesterday, and I whipped up this quick and simple card for him using the "card games" stamp set.
How clever am I?! I don't know if anyone else has thought of it but it's a brilliant way to personalize your cards. Cut out a window in the card and snail a photo to the back, or you could cut a photo to size and adhere.
