Beautiful watercolour background with some embossing and simple layered greeting

I made this card along with a few more at the last minute last week!  I was looking for quick and easy!!  I found this watercolour background in my stash and wanted to jazz it up a bit without covering any of it up so I embossed it with a simple floral flourish which did exactly what I wanted it to.  I mounted it to a green card front and added a simple layered greeting to finish it off.  The greeting is laser printed onto white cardstock, punched out with the Word Window punch (SU) and layered onto a Modern label punchie in bright turquoise blue!!  Perfect!  I mounted it to my card using 3D double sided tape just where it needed to be so it would be in the flow of the watercolour design!!  I love doing these watercolour backgrounds - just random spots and swipes of colour on a large piece.  Once dry, I trim them to 4" x 5.25" for A2 cards and they make awesome cards quick and easy!!                  Therese

Fun card for a young artist

I made this card for my grand daugther's birthday!!  She is growing up and really loving sketching at the moment so I when I found this lovely little illustration on Pixabay the other other I thought it would be perfect for her card.  I love the simplicity of the art and that it might be inspiration to create her own little bear!! or bunny or cat!!
I colour printed the digital image onto white cardstock and trimmed it out of the sheet - I printed several others while I was at it!!  I used a broad tipped permanent black marker to highlight the edge and mounted it onto a rectangle of red.  Very different for me, I mounted the image off of center, added sequins using tiny pieces of glut dots and dots with a clear glitter gel pen in between them.  Just a little greeting to finish it off mounted with 3D foam tape!!! 
I am really happy with the way this one turned out!!!
