Red for me!

Hello everyone, here is a quick post for the CASE Study Challenge #185

I've been looking at all the lovely cards for the Case Study challenge for a while now and I've decided to join in. The first challenge for April has a new Muse,  Jaclyn Miller!
I really like the clean lines of  Jaclyn's card and here is my take on the challenge.

I've used a Lil' Inker rectangle die for the top section of the card and created the red flowers with two layers from PTI's Garden Grace. The leaves from the same set are stamped with Encore Metallic Silver.  

I've then used a PTI Garden Grace die to emboss the design. This is the first time I've tried this and I'm happy with the result. I first saw this technique on Iwonas card and you can take a look here  .

The sentiment is Hero Arts -What's Up.

I did enjoy this case so I'll be back again when the next case is offered.
Here is the card from Jaclyn which inspired me.

Thanks for looking.

Hello everyone,

It's an age since I added a card the Monday  Challenge at Stamp TV   so I decided I should get into it again.

I'm also going to enter this card onto the Seize The Birthday challenge for  "Änything Goes Birthday". It a belated birthday card .I'm hoping it will be the first of many ( birthday cards that is- not belated...).

This is a new metal hydranga die (for me) and I've coloured the pieces with distress ink. 

It looked slightly bare and needed somthing extra I though, so, I cut the front panel back a little and placed some gold washi tape on the inside edge of the card -it is visible when the card is closed. 
I ran a gold pen around the edge to finish it all off!

The die is from Impression Obsession. The sentiment is Hero Arts( What's Up).

The card is a belated offering for a friend who has just turned 70!

Thanks for looking!
