An embossed get well card

I had a little play with a colour combo I have never thought of, thanks to the Colour Throwdown challenge this week :)

I embossed a piece of Pool Party card with my not very often used Houndstooth EF... I really should use this more often!

The flower is from the Flower Shop set, stamped in Night Of Navy, and punched with the Pansy Punch. The Chevron Ribbon is Calypso Coral and the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments, stamped in Night Of Navy and cut out using the Word Window Punch. I finished with some silver glass glitter in the middle of the flower for a bit of sparkle.

So what do you think of the colour combo? I think it has a nice, fresh feel to it!

Cardstock - Pool Party, Whisper White
Stamps - Flower Shop, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Punches/Dies - Word Window, Pansy Punch, Circles Collection Framelits
Other - Chevron Ribbon, Silver Glass Glitter

If you would like to buy any of the products I have used today, you get them direct from my online shop, or pleased do feel free to contact me to place your order!


I have work today, then prep for a craft workshop and a fun crafty day this weekend...are you up to anything nice?

Have a lovely Friday!
