Love & Sympathy (CAS154, TLC361)

Happy Chinese New Year, everyone!! It is now the year of the Dragon! I sent my son and daughter-in-law my Asian card that I made a week or so ago. My daughter-in-law is Chinese. Anyway, back to the challenges!!

This is for two challenges: The Technique Lovers Challenge is for us to be inspired by Belleek pottery. The way in which we were to do that was to choose and embossing folder with negative spaces, ink it up and emboss. I used the Vintage Wallpaper folder and my brayer, using Sahara Sand ink to ink up the folder. It turned out pretty cool, I think. The Clean and Simple Challenge was a color challenge. We were to use Pink, White and Certainly Celery. I used the "Love & Sympathy" set, colored the flower image with Pretty In Pink and Certainly Celery Markers and stamped. Then, I stamped over it with the sentiment in Black Stazon. I used Labels Framelits for the Whisper White panel and then traced around the same one with pencil on Pretty In Pink to create the mat. The base card is also Pretty In Pink. Thanks for stopping by!!!

CarrollAnn this is such a pretty card. I love the bg. I have used that technique for quite sometime because of the stunning results. Yours is stunning. Then the pretty flower cut with your nesties just finishes it off perfectly. Lovely card!
