Sunny Celebrations

Hello friends, I am so glad you stopped by - if only it was in real life. It is a rainy Friday night here which always makes me want to head to The Studio.  I have been playing around with some different images - I so love this one from Rubbermoon by Sunny Carvalho - this girl just makes me smile!  Today's card has been created from some upcycled packaging - it was way too pretty to throw out.

The image has been stamped onto white card stock using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black and coloured using Chameleon PensThis has been trimmed and popped up onto a longer tag with a 'dove-tailed' end.

The card front has been created using recycled card stock that has been cut/embossed using the second largest die from Spellbinders A-2 Matting Basics A Card Creator Etched Dies using the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" Platform. The pattern on the recycled has had some colour added, also using Chameleon Pens and a flower glued to the centre of the pattern Paint splatters have been randomly added in yellow, red and white - allow to dry.

The layered image has been popped up onto the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  Pre-cut flowers have been glued to the bottom left corner of the image layer, along with a sentiment added on the right side of the tag.
