Autumn birthday wishes.

Hi there!

Happy Saturday to you... and thanks for popping in to take a look at the card I have to share :)



A closer look:


... and a look at the products I used:





To create the background, I masked the area with the negative form a circle die cut, and placed the stencil over it. I applied one ink color at a time, and moved the stencil around a couple of times, switching colors with every move.

My card was inspired by the photo from the Altenew-November-2017-inspiration-challenge.
I love the look of the yellow leaves against the bokeh background, and this was the direction I followed to create my card.

Also sharing my card at Inkspirational challenges, where the word prompt is TREND.
Altenew's stencils and stamps are super trendy... so it's the perfect challenge to combine with the current inspiration photo challenge at the Altenew blog!





 Enjoy the weekend!

Hugs
Hannelie

Love that autumn bokeh background with your beautifully colored flowers! The bold sentiment shows up nicely against it and it just wouldn't be finished without the gold Washi tape and the rhinestones. The perfect touch!
