Purple And Pink Make My Day

Good Morning Craft Lovers,

I seem to have loads of orange coloured cards. Orange theme has never been on my favourite list, so they tend to be left out. Yesterday I had some free time so I decided to make a birthday card to fill in my card tin. I took out three different shades of orange coloured card from my cardstock and started designing in my mind. But I don't know why, whenever I see a non favourable colour card, my mind just go blank.

Pink Handmade Birthday Card

Didn't want to waste the precious time I had for crafting, I then took a pink patterned card and a purple card and presto all ideas started flooding in. My two favourite colours, have never let me down.

It took me just a few minutes to complete the card. No colouring involve, just cutting and gluing so it was easy peasy. First I used a very light cream coloured card for base. Then I layered it with a purple card and two different shades of pink patterned card. The one with a birthday wish on it, is a free gift from one of my old craft magazine. Can't remember which magazine though.

Flower Handmade Birthday Card

To make this birthday card look more attractive, I decided to stamp some pink and purple flowers and added some silver border stickers. Also some pearls to give that extra added touch.

Until my next project... Craft With Love
