Today I spent a very enjoyable time with crafting friends at Belstead House. Unfortunately I can't locate my challenge piece which was to be altered (a wooden plague set by Jacqui), so instead I did my own thing and made a 'Sorry you're leaving' card for someone in my office who finishes at the end of this week. Normally I wouldn't post anything on my blog prior to the challenge date or handing over the project but I know the recipient doesn't use social networking so think it's safe in this instance.
As with most of the cards I make for work, I used an A4 card as my base and then used cream, brown and Kraft card stock plus some Stampin'Up papers. I created the sentiment background using a Spellbinders labels die and used the Tim Holtz tattered florals and swirl dies for the embellishment. I also used glossy accents, crackle glaze and gems. Finally I added a swirl stamp to the edges of the sentiment.
Sometimes I'm not very pleased with the photos I take and this is one of those instances as it doesn't show the warmth of colours very well but you get the idea.
