AAA#17 and CTS#89



Hi everyone!


Not often that I combine challenges, but for this card I have used the sketch over at the CAS(E) this Sketch blog and I have done some stencilling for the game over at the AAA Challenge blog.






This is the card I have created:






I've sponged my bg with different Distress Inks (oranges, yellow and a little bit of blue and green)
and then made a stencil with my Tim Holtz Alterations Lattice die.  With my Versamark stamp pad and some glittery clear embossing powder I've done the diamond pattern. 


I stamped my Afrikaans sentiment with Walnut Stain Distress Ink - sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.
The flourish die is from MFT and the flower stamp and die from Verve.


I really enjoyed making this card and I do like how it turned out!!


Thanks for popping in and have a great day!!

Keep well!!
Kind regards.
Petra

Your card is amazing Petra. What caught my eye immediately is the glow of the white card stock. It certainly highlights the whole card in a special glow. Love the die cut flower, leaves and the panel. truly a piece of art. - Jim

This card truly does glow as Irish said. Am loving the way you created the stencil with the lattice die, and those colors were so pretty (and especially so with the background view too!). Love that flourish and of course your gorgeous flower. Hope you're feeling much better, and so happy to check and find a post tonight! TFS & Big hugs.
