AAA cards #11


Hi everyone!


I had a very busy week and nothing happened in my craft room, but last night I had some time to play with paper and stamps.  I made a card for the current challenge over at the AAA Challenge Blog.


 
 
 
 
This is the card I have made:

 
 



I've heat-embossed the daisies on vellum and fussy cut them.  The 'Fancy Flourish' die I've used is from MFT and the daisy stamp from Verve.
The Afrikaans sentiment says:  'Congratulations'.


That will be it for now.  Thanks for popping in and have a lovely weekend!!

Keep well!!
Kind regards.
Petra

Love how you've offset the squares and your colours are so striking - love yellow and black together. Your vellum flowers are so dainty and set the whole card off perfectly.

Love this composition - interesting geometric shapes softened by those beautiful vellum flowers. Great job!

Love this card Petra. It's the combination of strong colours and shapes and the softness of the lovely vellum flowers.

Hugs.

Daardie vellum blomme is so pragtig Petra. Ek hou baie van die kontrasterende helder geel daarby.

Petra, I'm so sorry that I missed this beauty during the challenge. I think I was having a card making breakdown.
Your card is so pretty in yellow and black with the gorgeous vellum flowers!
Thank you for gracing the AAA Cards galleries with your outstanding work!
