Today's card is another example of playing mix and match.
It's another unlikely trio but it can work!
Previously, I made a few cards with the Congratulations Circle Die and had one leftover house piece. It was too good to throw away, so I came up with another design.
Remember my colorful house card (see here) ? Yup, I had an extra one and I put it to good use here. The French sentiment was die cut from my DIY watercolor paper with Zig Markers. I stamped the leaves and flowers in Shabby Shutter and Ruby Red with MISTI. For the coloring of the leaves, I used Fantastix to ink up the Shabby Shutter.
If you do not know about Fantastix, these absorbent nibs/brushes will soak up the colors that you want, so you can color the images with your chosen colors. They have been around for a long time now and are good to have on hand. For the final touches, I added strings, gold Stickles and a strip of zig zag paper.
Lastly, Craftsy is having a major discount for their most popular online classes. For a limited time only, shop their most popular online classes for just $14.99. The paper-crafting classes can be found here.
