Card for a Friend


This week over at the PanPastel Uk challenge they have the theme of summertime.  I started by covering the background with orange (280.5) and bright yellow green (680.5).  I stamped the Stampendous rose plate twice and erased the colour from the flower heads.  I then gave it a quick spray of fixative.  I then took one of the tools and carefully coloured the roses in with permanent red (340.5) and the leaves with permanent green (640.5) and gave it another spray of fixative.  Finally I added the red buttons.


As I have used buttons again, I am also entering this card into Out of a hat creations challenge whose theme this week is buttons.


A friend of mine was knocked over by a hit and run driver last week, so I am sending this card on to her but haven't found the right sentiment yet.
