Sunday Slot

Seems absolutely ages since I've made a card to enter a challenge, so when I saw The Card Concept's beautiful inspiration photo for their one year anniversary I knew it was time to put this right.

I love all the pinks in the photo and picked up on the stripes, roses, ribbon and the little hint of greenery. The sentiment had to be congratulations as it's such an achievement to be one year old on the busy challenge blog scene.

The flowers are a two stage stamp and I fussy cut them and mounted the smallest one onto pads. I'm loving how the colour of the punched leaves just lifts and showcases the pinks.

Stanps: Clearly Besotted, Bridal Bouquet; Uniko Studio, sentiment from Sweet Baby
Inks: Memento, angel pink, rose bud
Die: Clearly Besotted, Bracket Edges
Punch: Woodware, large grass 1
Embellishments: paper scraps & twine from my stash

I'm thinking my card fits into The Card Concept's 'clean and layered' style - always find it so hard to define a card style. 

Thank you for spending some of your time looking at my blog today, it's much appreciated.
