It's World Cardmaking Day and there are many challenges today.  a2z Scrapbooking's first challenge today is to use aqua, silver and white.
I made some paper by smooshing pewter liquid pearls on white paper with a piece of crumpled cling wrap.  I then used distress ink sponged over it after it was dry.  Stamped and embossed the poinsettia in white and die cut.  The darker aqua strip is just the same paper with more ink (hard to see in photo that there is pewter on it also).  The card base is 4"x5 1/2" so the poinsettia can be over the edge.

Stamp: Hero Arts CL796; "Joy" is also HA
Ink: Distress - tumbled glass
Other: HA silver embossing powder; Ranger liquid pearls

Thanks for visiting and your kind comments.  Betty
