No Time (again)!

Another busy week... time has disappeared again.

I (finally) managed to make a couple of cards last night. This one is a birthday card for a friend who is a huge fan of orange and green... the image was coloured using Stampin' Up! Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie watercolour wonder crayons (with some Ruby Red and Garden Green) and an aqua painter. The "Celebrate" stamp is by Stampin' Up! and the flower stamp is by Hero Arts. There are self-adhesive gems in the centres of the flowers. The flower image was stamped on SU Confetti White cardstock (which is better for watercolouring with an aqua painter... it holds water better than Whisper White cardstock and the aqua painters can produce a fair bit of water!) and the panel to to the rear of the stamped image is Pumpkin Pie cardstock.

We've had a couple of new doors installed this week and the company has made a complete toss of it and needs to come back and replace them... more mess/grief!

Sweet! GREAT card! I love the colors, the flower image and of course the scallops!

I really like the colours on this, Elaine, and the button with the ribbon flash is a really nice finishing touch.
