A Little HELLO card.

I found this lovely colour challenge 
over at
and thought I would play.
I had made several backgrounds before this one but they
weren't quite right so decided to heat emboss
this stamp from Urban Stamps
Beautiful -  Lepidopterology (big word)
with white embossing powder and then
inked up the background with
SU Melon Mambo - stained fingers and all
Yo Yo Yellow and Calypso Coral and popped.
My 'Hello' is from Lawn Fawn cut twice
and heat embossed for gloss.
Finished with a few Snow Pearls from Kaisercraft.
That's it for me for a few days as I am heading off
to spend a few days with my Sister in Law at the
Sunshine Coast - in Sunny Queensland.

Thanks for dropping in.
I love reading your comments so don't be shy!

Fabulous use of the CC&S colours to create your stunning backgound. Love how effective the white embossing is against it. Thanks for playing along at CC&S, hope now you've found us you'll come back another time.
