Thank You Cards for #GDP027

Thank You Cards for #GDP027

The theme for this week’s challenge over at Global Design Project is Thank You! The design team have personally picked one of the regular participants to receive the cards they have made for the Design Team Inspiration and I am absolutely blown away that the fabulously talented Teneale Williams picked me! Her card is fantastic and she went to so much effort, checking out my blog to use the colours from my header in her card. Here is her fantastic card! Don’t you just love it? Head over to Global Design Project website to check out all the other Design Team projects and the participants entries too!

GDP027 Thank you

Now for my own entry this week. There couldn’t be a better challenge for me as I make so many Thank You cards anyway so the cards I have made will be put to good use by going to my lovely customers! I had a couple of background panels lurking in my unfinished projects basket that I have been wondering what to do with. I loved the backgrounds a lot so wanted them to be a large part of the card and not be hidden in the …..well background lol! As I just got the Botanical Builder Framelits, I decided to use those. I just love these flowers so much!

I sponged a combination of Melon Mambo around the edges and Pink Pirouette in the middle before splashing with drops of water to get the bokeh effect for this card. My original idea was to have the flowers and leaves as one tone, using Pink Pirouette, but it was so much pink, I broke out in hives lol! Now this is my favourite of the two!

This card is much softer and I do like the white on white of the flowers and leaves. The background is sponged in an ombre effect with Pink Pirouette and Blushing Bride.

What do you think? Which one do you prefer?
