A birthday card with burshstrokes


One of the FAV

One of the Winners

Hello crafty friends! Today I'd like to share with you a birthday card I made for several challenges.

The colors offered at CAS Colours & Sketches really cought my eyes:

Such a beautiful color combo!

I also loved the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches:

I knew right away I'd be using my brushstorkes stamps.

I used 3 different stamps, with the colors of the challenges. The leaf was die cut 3 times, with a textured cs on the upper layer. I also inked it's edges to give some defenition and it gave the leaf kind of a shadow, when adhered on the stamped brushstrokes.

I added the sentiment on the right, this time vertically, as if it is a barrier for the brushstrokes.

It also goes for the 'Botanical' challenge at CASology:

Thank you for visiting my blog. Your comments are much appreciated.
