Card Candy Congratulations


My blogfriend Loll has been making her own gorgeous card candy, and has been giving it away.  I was the lucky winner of her Giveaway #2, which arrived the other day.  And one of the flowers was perfect for this card.

The challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to make a clean and simple congratulations card:


And the challenge at Less is More this week is to use the
COLOUR OF YOUR FRONT DOOR!
We would like to see a pic of your front door too if possible, but is not absolutely necessary!

Now my front door is plain white UPVC with frosted glass panels with black trim, and an aluminium handle.  Not worth taking a photo of, so I won't bore you with one.

I stamped the Dream Words Border (Stampendous) in Brilliance Pearlescent Ice Blue (which stamps a lovely silvery grey colour) to represent the frosted glass.  I added some black punched leaves behind the flower, and stamped Congratulations (Paper Smooches Simply Said) in black.

Thanks Loll!
