I’m finally back…….  It has been a couple of weeks since my last post.

I’ve created this card for my groups challenge – Patriotric Theme.  Without doing the colours of the flag or the Southern Cross, I decided to go with Black, Yellow & Red.  I only hope my trees look a little like the gums out home!  See what you think?

Base Card – Daffodil Delight – 5 7/8″ x 4 1/8″ or 15cm x 10cm
Layer 1 – Real Red – 5 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 9.5cm
Layer 2 – Basic Black – 5″ x 3 1/8″ or 13cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 – Whisper White – 4 7/8″ x 3″ or 12.5cm x 9cm
I stamped the tree image directly onto the Whisper White Card using Versamark Ink.  I then heat embossed the image using Black Embossing Powder
I punched the moon from a scrap of Whisper White Card & adhered it to the Whisper White Card.  Using my SU Sponges & Basic Black Ink, I sponged the bottom half, ensuring that the horizon wasn’t in a straight line.
I sponged the next layer using Daffodil Yellow, followed by Real Red Inks.  Once sponging was completed, I carefully removed the moon & rubbed a little White Shimmer Paint on the moon to make it look like there was a “man on the moon.”
I adhered the Real Red Card to the Base Card – Daffodil Yellow.  I then adhered the image piece of card to Basic Black Card & adhered it to the Base Card.  I coloured the Rhinestones using Basic Black Ink & applied a little Crystal Effects on top.
For my sentiment, I stamped it in Basic Black onto Whisper White Card, punched it out using my Oval Punch & then punched a piece of Daffodil Yellow with the Scallop Oval Punch and adhered to the base card.
