A SPLASH Of Colour

It's a colour splash this week over at The Play Date Cafe, a SPLASH of YELLOW.  I really enjoy these challenges, so much so I made two cards this week.
I've used a Memory Box stamp for my first creation aptly named Spriggle (available from The Stamp Attic), I love the name and the stamp, simple but very effective when embellished with jewels.  I have embossed the white card in the background with dots to echo the dots on the Spriggle.  A simple sentiment completes my first creation.
For my second creation I have used stamps from Outlines and created an accordion card, the image above shows the flower in detail.
My flower has been stamped onto white card and Black Market Paper Society papers and then layered one on top of the other to give a 3D flower.  I really enjoyed making these cards, a nice change from everything Christmas related, I am really looking forward to Christmas this year but I've definitely had my fill of Christmas card makes at the moment LOL.  Enjoy your build up to Christmas this week, take care, Tracy x x
