This weeks Muse is Joan Bardee and she did a beautifully simple design that packs a punch with the gold embossing and watercolouring.
Why is it the simpler something looks the harder it is to do???
I did my usual and broke it down to the elements that jumped out at me and that was the colours,the gold embossing and the vellum...and of course the rectangle in the middle!!
(Honestly I am so stuck in a rut at the moment - everything I create is mounted on a rectangle in the middle of the card,must make an effort to try some new layouts!)
Sorry about the photo but this was the only one that caught the gold embossing properly.I stamped it and embossed it before adding the strip of pale pink card,with the vellum butterfly that I coloured with a SU marker pen.
I found that I had only one stamp of a cake and that is a SU one with the sentiment coming from that set too and says
'so many candles, so little cake!'
Sadly that will be me in a couple of months time, with not enough puff to blow out all of my candles!
Thanks for taking the time to look and hope you have a great weekend!
