Hey everyone!

Today I’m sharing a card that I’m entering into two totally awesome challenges:

Cure For The Monday Blues Challenge #12 and Virginia’s View Challenge #2.

Cure For The Monday Blues #12     VV2

I’ve combined these challenges for the simple reason that they are great starting points for colours and techniques. Here’s my card:

©Candles in the Garden. Tinted translucent embossing paste, die cut stars and a peg.

I created the background by tinting some translucent embossing paste with a Metallic Mint Gelato and pushed it through the Texture Cressida stencil from Memory Box onto a white panel. This gave me some wonderful texture and shine!

Once dry, I foam mounted the panel to a white card base and die-cut some stars from neon cardstock using the Hearts and Stars die from Memory Box. I sprinkled these onto the panel along with a large Clearly Besotted Geometric Rose vellum die-cut.

I stuck strips of some striped red and white washitape onto a scrap panel and first die-cut a square, then die-cut a heart in the centre. The gold showing through the heart is some Delicata Golden Glitz smushed onto another scrap panel and is so shiny! The sentiment comes from Clearly Besotted’s A Little Sentimental set and was stamped onto a piece of cardstock that had a light wash of Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.

I clipped the sentiment and the die-cut square panel with a wooden peg which I coloured using a sharpie to match the background, and foam mounted to the card base.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekends!
