The 'That's Crafty' challenge theme is 'Zesty Zing'. Now orange is a colour I very rarely use on my cards, but I guess it fits into the theme with the zesty colours of lemon and lime, so this took me a bit out of my comfort zone. I had an idea in my head for a design....but this wasn't it....apart from the stamp. My card sort of evolved as I went along.
The stamp is an old wood mounted Stampendous stamp, 'Glasgow Rose Garden'. I stamped it in the top corner of the card blank and coloured it with Promarkers. I used a MB 'Grand Happy Birthday' die and attached the die cut over the bottom of the card. I decided it looked too plain to leave it as it was, so I added a Poppystamp 'Small Flower Box' die cut, attached with foam pads to give a little dimension. I didn't have any small green pearls, so I coloured three white ones with the Promarker I used for the leaves. So that is my card, which looks nothing like I intended!
