Here it is!

Okay, all is revealed! This card is using the most simplest of layering techniques but I hope I have added interest with the colours and stamps that I used.

White Layer: This uses the really pretty flower stamp from the Stampin' Up! Close as a Memory set. I have coloured it in using Stampin' Write Markers in the colours of Stampin' Up! Classic colours of Yoyo Yellow, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive. Let the colours of the flowers blend in together - it promises to be beautiful!

Black Layer: For this I used the Encore!® metallic ink pad in silver which I then rolled with the Stampin' Around Wheel and handle using the Watercolour Joy wheel.

The green layer: Also uses the Stampin' Write Marker in Old Olive and the Stampin' Up! sprinkles stamp on the Wild Wasabi green cardstock.

Put all the pieces together and you have a simple design but a beautifully presented card! I don't normally use green and blacks as strong feature colours on my cards, but I thought green would go with the Thai Massage Treatment Voucher I gave which was also a strong shade of green (fairly close to Wild Wasabi actually). Beautifully presented, I was really happy with it!

Oh, and before I forget - the sentiment of Best Wishes came from the Short & Sweet Set which is one of the sets currently on offer with Stampin' Up!'s 20th birthday celebrations. This stamp set and others (see Home page) are 20% off for the month of October. Contact me to get yours before time runs out!
