Up, up and Away


Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. I've been tidying up and planting seeds at my tiny planting lot. So I went for flowers for my card, but I must say that the red colours aren't really that bright IRL. It must be the Glossy Accents reflecting some of the light. I'll see if I can take a better pic.

The sentiment is in Swedish and it brings warm Birthday Wishes.

Less Is More: Up, up and away

Materials used:
Penny Black image stamped with Water Can Archival ink, coloured with Newton & Winsor watercolours.
Vilda Stamps sentiment stamped with same ink.
Kaiser Craft half pearls ( love them).
EK Success green corner adorner and Bazzill card stock, 3 D squares.
The paper strips and the piece for the sentiment are from the snippet box. The envelope with white snippets is almost empty now, gasp, but there are a huge amount of other snippets :)


Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated! I love to visit you to, even if it is the next weekend. The evenings after work seems to be so short sometimes.

Love and hugs
Maarit
