Moroccan Mosaic

Hello Readers,

For today I am playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch, Creative with Stamps and Sunday Stamps. Both challenges were irresistible and had to throw my hat into the ring. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

Such a soft but cheery card. Perfect for a wedding
or any type of congratulations.
The Moroccan DD paper matches its window framed in white.

 Left: My new birthday present stamp by Altenew. Using the emboss resist technique and colors from Sunday Stamps. Hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers to color Right: The ombre effect in the sentiment is so pretty. I tried many color options but it seemed the ombre was the best choice.

 Challenges Entered:
CAS(E) this Sketch: CTS #185
Creative with Stamps: Challenge #5- Geometric
Sunday Stamps: SSC133- Shades of Blue

   

Hydrangeas are possibly the most diverse and beautiful flower I have ever seen. What I found so interesting is the color of the flower is determined by what you feed it.. The ingredients in its food can make the flower a rainbow of colors. A few years ago we all went to Cape Cod to visit family. I was seriously awestruck by the beauty of their Hydrangeas. In fact every year they have the Hydrangea Festival. I can only imagine the display of color.

Well that is all for me! Time to turn it in for tonight. I do hope you enjoyed your stay and thank you so much for stopping by. I really do appreciate every single visit. So, until next time take care and happy stamping.

All the best,
Shawna
