Glorious Hibiscus, a Snippet and a Birthday party



Morning Peeps, it's time for our new challenge at Allsorts and this week Helene would like to see something relating to 'Music' on our artwork. Our sponsor is Digistamp Boutique and we also have a second prize of a collection of lovely Tattered Lace musical instrument dies.


And here's a little heads up to what's coming up on 20th May, please feel free to grab the logo and share on your own blogs to help us spread the word.

Well, this is not what I had in mind but the Sheena Hibiscus flowers were sitting on my desk all coloured up ready with Spectrum Sparkle pens after I took apart another card which just didn't go as planned. So I inked up some watercolour card using DI's, used a music score and randomly stamped the base layer, some honeycomb stenciling to the top layer along with a Visible Image sentiment, layered it all up and placed the ready arranged flower spray and finito, a pretty quick and easy card. And as the Hibiscus blooms were all stamped onto offcuts I think this fits nicely into the current 279/280 Snippets Playground challenge.

Happy weekend all and I do hope you will join in our challenge this week and of course pop over to see the inspiration my teamies have on offer.

Who doesn't love a birthday party! Congratulations, Allsorts! The colors on your backgrounds are citrusy sweet! I can smell the lemon, lime and melon flavors all the way in Florida! (oh! silly me, that is my own backyard I smell! LOL) Beautiful floral creation, Brenda, and such a wonderful card design with the lovely hibiscus and black frames around the panels. Wishing you a fantastic week-end! hugs, de
