Subtle to Bright

During the Olympics I spent most of my time in front of the television cheering on Team GB and at times when things got a little tense just peering out between my fingers! However I did make a quick trip to my craft room to make a thank you card. Well the intention was that it would be quick but it took three attempts to the make a background that I was happy with! The best laid plans......

Card Recipe 
Craft Creations Centura Pearl Snow White
Xerox Colortech+
Purple card
Tim Holtz script from Papillion CMS106
Shaded Lilac Distress Ink
White detail embossing powder
Spellbinders butterfly die cuts
Flat back pearls
White Zig Posterman pen

Life seemed a bit dull once the Olympics were over so it seemed a good time to brighten things up by cracking open my new Dylusions ink sprays and inject some colour into my work space. I started by making the Linda Elbourne project in August's Craft Stamper. I only used the inks on the background - the flowers are coloured with Copics. It's a rubbish photo but my scan didn't show the true colours. The card is square!
