Good Morning.......... Hope you have all had a great week end.

Today I have a card to share using a hibiscus die from memory box that I have had for ages and not used until now!
I was inspired by a card made by the very talented Loll which you can see here on her blog, 

I created the yellow background with some distress inks and a brush from Inkylicious and then die cut with a stitched square.
I created the orange card by dabbing some distress inks onto my craft mat and spraying with water before placing my water colour card on top, when dry I die cut the hibiscus twice, and used some of the lighter shades to cut the stamen. The leaves are die cut from a large die and then I cut them up to create some foliage for my flower.
I tried out Lolls technique for adding dimension and then used some foam pads to mount onto my card.
I stamped the sentiment in versa mark and then heat embossed in yellow.
I added some gold sequins for a bit of bling!

  2. Gail, love this card! This die has been used in such a beautiful way against the fab distress inked background. Loved the CAS look of the entire card, with the splash of color in the focal piece. TFS
