OSAAT #159 - Bright

The theme for this week's challenge at One Stitch at a Time is 'Bright'. My designer this week was Jess and I chose the image 'Floral Cap Nouveau W' and it's available to buy at Stitchybear Digital Stamp Store. You can buy other letters but my daughter in law is Wendy and as she is very artistic I thought she would appreciate this image on her birthday card this year. The 'bright' theme also helped because her favourite colour is orange and that's pretty bright!! My favourite colour is green so that had to be in there too.

My card blank is by Joanna Sheen. I used Papermill green card and Papermill orange card as the mat for the image. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and then cut it with a Spellbinders grand nestie. The beautiful image didn't really need much in the way of embellishments so I only added some flat 'gem' stickers to the corners - they are from JJD Cards. I also added a green ribbon to the bottom and that's from the local market. Job done and it's all ready for Wendy's birthday in July!

The sponsor for this week's challenge is Stitchybear. Please check the challenge blog for prize details.
