Dandelions Friendship Card - CAS Colours & Sketches Sketch Challenge #89

Whilst surfing the web at the weekend I came across a lovely sketch that grabbed my attention, it's perfect to use with my curved border dies.  The sketch is from the latest CAS Colours & Sketches challenge and I hoped I'd be able to take part - I've managed to squeeze my card in on the last day of the challenge!

I've used my new Inkylicious 'Dandelion Wishes' stamp set and a simple navy and white colour combo with a dash of yellow.  I sponged Daffodil Delight ink onto the white CS oval, stamped the dandelions with Night of Navy ink and layered onto a larger Night of Navy oval.  I die cut the curved border, stamped the sentiment - which I think is SO lovely - and glued the shape to the front of my A6 sized Night of Navy card base. I popped up the oval and added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to sparkle up the dandelions.

I very lightly sponged Daffodil Delight ink onto a panel of white CS for inside the card, stamped the dandelions and sentiment and added more sparkly glitter.  I'll be using this as a birthday card for a dear friend who loves navy and white, nature images and prefers cards with a plain design.  Rather than stamping a specific birthday sentiment I thought the 'make a wish' sentiment was a sweet option for a dandelion birthday card!  

More sparkled dandelions went onto the front of the envelope. I really enjoyed making this card, what a fab layout to work with!
