CPS #41

I thought i would take a little break from Christmas cards, so for this weeks sketch over at CPS i made this Birthday card. A lovely lady called Sue who attends my card making club that i host once a fortnight had asked me to design a card as she has someone with a Birthday in January.
I took this card with me last night along with a print out of the sketch, so that they could see how i interpreted it! Those that want to will make a similar card at our next session on December 11th, which is our last meet this year :)

The card is 5 x 7 which i covered with some paper from K & Co classic McKenna. I attatched the ends of the grosgrain before gluing to the card front, and the other two ends were passed up through the buckle slide and tied in a knot. The stamped flower is 'Watercolour Rose' from Paper Inspirations which i inked up with Adirondacks in Lettuce and Pesto for the stem and leaves, and for the flower head i used Cranberry and Sea Brights 'Bikini Pink' I used a HOTP acrylic stamp for the sentiment inked up with Colorbox 'Olive Pastel'

other supplies :- Nunn Design buckle slide, Basic Grey paper,(matting below the image)
American Crafts grosgrain, Laxmi design texture stamp, K&Co chipboard(below the sentiment)
