Something for the Weekend - Purple and Yellow

Earlier this year in someone's garden there was a wonderful display of Yellow and Purple pansies, could not get the colour combination out of my head for weeks and then finally made a card of it. Now with a new challenge Something for the week-end the colour combination has come back. Wanted to do something different with it and went through the stash, this Celtic stencil struck a cord backed by fantasy fiber and a sun burst cut freehand from some yellow vellum.

Sorry if I gave the impression that this is hand embossed on this occassion the stencil was popped through the Cuttlebug, although I like to think that my dry embossing is as good time was the factor here.


  1. Wow your hand embossing and cutting are fantastic and backed with the fantasy fiber so stunning Zoe.
    Thank you for joining us on our very first challenge at "Stampin´ for the Weekend" with such a beautiful card and we hope to see you back playing on a weekly basis. Good luck.
