LOC Sweet Wishes

Hello everyone - it is very exciting being in Australia today - our very own Jessica Watson is just sailing into Sydney Harbor after sailing around the world single handed in her yacht, the Pink Lady - she is only 16 years old and completed this amazing task in 210 days- what an amazing  girl!  The whole of Australia is standing and cheering her on as she sails the last distance in through the main part of Sydney Harbour.  I had another card to post but today decided to go 'pink' in honour of Jessica.

This is another card I made while clearing my desk with the aim of having it clean before I head off to New Zealand with my DD1 for a week with the family.  So rather than just put more things away I thought I would put together another CAS style card with the gorgeous layered flower from Layers of Color - again they are from the Flowering Gems art stamp set , this is a bigger flower than yesterday and just as delish!!  This is another example of  how easy it was to make a pretty card with just one layered flower!

I popped the second flower up on a dimensional, after colouring it with chalks and adding some Kindy Glitz for that little bit of shimmer. The DP is from a Blog Candy that I won months ago and although I have been cutting into bits and pieces of it, I decided I need to seriously 'attack' it, so this time I tore it and inked the edge of the pink side and layered it onto the reverse side of the DP - I just love this colour combo - it works so well with this image.  I also added some crotchet lace - I love lace on cards...don't you!

The sentiment is from a set of PTI stamps I won on a Blog Candy last year - they are the best little sentiments and come in so handy,  I have embossed with white SU Embossing Powder and rather than use Versamark I used white craft link....I love the slightly sharper look of it!

I know I mentioned yesterday, but thought it was worth saying again....I don't think I am letting out any 'national secrets' when I tell you that Layers of Color has some exciting New Releases coming up next month - you are NOT going to miss these....and....shhhh...just thought you might like to know...they are releasing something very new and EXCITING - keep watching this space for more into and check over at the Layers of Color Blog for the details as they become available.  have you joined the SNR Group - you have the opportunity for discounts and SNEAK PEEKS that are not available anywhere else - you can find it here - we would love to see you!
