More Yellow and Orange Flowers ...

It would seem that I am starting the New Year with a yellow and orange theme ... I guess it makes a change from the red of Christmas!  I associate these colours with the start of the new day and Spring - at least they make me smile!

Today I've created a card for a special person ... one of my Aunts celebrates her 80th birthday this month ... so a special card was required.




I began by stamping and heat embossing the flowers and then ink blended shades of yellow and orange across the panel.  I then die cut the square with stitched square dies, creating a frame for the panel.  I also die cut the numbers both from the panel and from some black card.  The central panel is mounted onto some fun foam to add dimension and interest. I stacked the numbers before adhering them to the card.

I used:
Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Mini Bouquet Stamp Set
Dienamics Stitched Square Dies
Distress Inks - Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin, Ripe Persimmon and Spiced Marmalade.

I am entering the following challenges:

"Less is More" #309 Dimension

Penny Black and More January Challenge - Anything Goes

Enjoy!
