FEBRUARY CARD CHAIN CHALLENGE

This month my Card Chain Challenge partner is Dawn Turley in New Zealand - Dawn is one of the first stampers I met when I first started joining this challenge so it's great to be sending her a card again.  I used the colors (aubergine, rose and cream), sketch and theme (friend) for her card.


I white embossed some of the flowers from Altenew's Adore You set onto black cs and then watercolored with Kuretake metallic colors.  I put some score lines for texture down the left side of the card, but they didn't photgraph very well.  Added a few Nuvo gold drops and the little sentiment and done.

Thanks for stopping by today and always enjoy reading your kind comments.
