One Day Special on Hochanda launching this evening

Hi Bloggers.

I'm launching a One Day Special on Hochanda this evening at 8pm with some lovely Sue Wilson Dies and Justrite Stamps - I do hope you can join me.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I stamped one of the stamps from the Justrite Confetti Trio Background Stamp Set around the edges of a piece of Coconut White Card using CS Lilac Whisper Cloud Cloud applying the ink to the stamp using a Smoothie. I matted onto Lilac Card.

I stamped the image from the Justrite Make A Wish Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I coloured in using CS Colour Clouds - I used Lilac Whisper and Sun-Lit Cedar. I cut it out using Sue's Happy Birthday Circle Die Set.

I cut the Happy Birthday Circle decorative die from the same set out of Lilac Card.

I cut dies #5 and #6 together from Sue Wilson's Madeleine Die Set out of Lilac Card. I threaded some Off White Satin Ribbon through the slits at the sides of the die cut. I added the die cut to my background and wrapped the ribbon around to the back of the card.

I completed my card by adding an 8mm White Pearl to the corners of my background and popped it onto a Coconut White Card Blank.
