A Quick Card.....

G'day, How are you today?  This is the card I put together for my sister's birthday this year.  I finished this just before we walked out the door, on the way to her birthday dinner.  I started it about twenty minutes before that.  Fast and glorious!!! 
Now, with this card I had the background in my stash.  It was one I had made when I used to go do cardmaking, with a wondeful lady named, Cheryll.  It is totally her background design, and I will not take credit for it.  I can't refer you to a blog or anything, as she doesn't have one. 

What I have found over on Splitcoast Stampers, are two a techinques similar to what we used.  This is the Wax Paper Cuttlebug Resist and the second one is Wax Paper Resist

We used the Cuttlebug to emboss wax paper.  We stamped our swirl image onto glossy card stock before we ironed the wax paper.  Once, we had ironed the wax paper design onto the cardstock, we used a brayer and multicoloured stamp pad to ink over the design.  It reminds me of the batik we used to do at school.  

Okay, with the background from my stash, I layered up five flowers, with a pink brad for the centre.  Stamped up a sentiment inked the edges with some pink ink.  Added a strip of pink ribbon and put it all together on a black base.  I nearly forgot, added some bling on the ribbon.  Every girl needs a little bit of bling. 

Hope you have enjoyed my Quick Card.  Sure hope you have had a chance to be creative.   Drop back soon, 'cause ya never now what ya gunna get!!!

Thanks for popping by and happy creating.
