Sparkler Flowers

Hello again everybody,

I have made another birthday card today as my stash is running low and we all know how often a birthday can creep up on us!!! I went for a simple image and based the card around the sketch #234 from AHSC

 Here is my take on the sketch:

I used a purple base card, then layered a watercolour effect orange patterned paper and a purple and green patterned paper, with a green scalloped circle in between. Finally I inked the egdes of a piece of white card with Boofle green, Dovecraft purple and Distress Cracked Pumpkin inks. I used these same inks to stamp the flowers into the box. Finally I added two die-cut leaves (Crafter Companion die) and wrapped this panel with twine.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Card Mania #97 Orange, green and purple
inkspirational #146 Inkspirational photo - Inspired by the basket, leaves and natural effect (for my twine). I also used sparkler effect flowers.
Addicted to stamps #155 Flowers
MAWTT #56 Autumn

ooh and here is the meal I made for me and hubby the other day - It was spagetti nests stuffed with roasted vegetables!!
ok so the nests were overflowing slightly as my muffin tins were a little too small lol.

Also, meet our pet cockroach :)  He doesn't like playing out much and we really should give him a name hehe. Considering how little he actually eats he is quite the beast.

Thanks for looking,

Hugz Tinz
