Upcycled card

Hello sweet bloggers,

I was away to a beautiful island in Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia as it was autumn break and I fell in love with watching sunset every day while we were there. I realized that each sunset I watched was different from the other and it had me totally mesmerized. For some reason my phone and camera are not relating well with each other so I am not able to download photos. I will certainly send you photos when I succeed in downloading them.

This card was made a while ago and it looks quite nice in real life. The colours match quite nicely when I look at the card and yet in the photo the card stock looks so yellow. The roses have been up cycled and I actually got them from the newspaper. The sentiment is embossed and I have sponged it with distressed ink and stuck it with 3D foam dots. The card stock has also been sponged to give it character and that is pretty much it.

I will submit this card for the following challenges: - flowers anything goes - scraps/cutoffs

It is such a relief that it is Friday today.

Happy crafting,
