WWC254 - Tristan's Challenge: All About Occasions

Hello and welcome!  This week it is all about occasion cards at The Watercooler Wednesday challenge website and Tristan is our talented hostess.  

I had some lovely left over alcohol ink scraps that I wanted to use on a background.  I trimmed the pieces to a variety of widths and then pieced them together to make a solid background.  Blue, aqua and lime is a favorite color combination of mine.  My original intent was to cover the background with a circle die cut panel and sentiment, but I thought that looked a little plain so I added some interest with Simon Says Stamp's wonderful Outline Clustered Leaves die.  I cut the leaves from some Recollections embossed paper.  I like the end result and gave this card to one of my girlfriends.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Addicted To Stamps - Make Your Mark

  3. I love your use of colours, Karen. The scraps you used from your alcohol ink creations work beautifully together. Adding the die-cut open-work leaves really was a brilliant touch.
