KWerner Colour Inspiration #25 - My First Attempt!

So, I've finally got around to taking part in Kristina's colour challenge, and managed to upload it in time too! Yay! I found this colour combo difficult, mainly because I don't have any Stampin' Up! products and finding papers to match the swatches was difficult (due to my pauper's collection of papers!). But I'm happy with the result - and I used techniques inspired by Kristina too - a lot of clear embossing fun....I just love this effect. I made a whole batch of thank you cards recently using purely clear embossing and they looked great!

This flower is a Cuttlebug die cut covered in diamond glitter for a bit of bling. And a jewel for the centre to lift it and make it sparkle even more! I love my jewels ;-)

The 'Happy Birthday' was just handwritten. I'm fed up of forking out for new stamps and then not having the exact one for the look I'm trying to acheive. I have fairly nice handwriting, so I'm trying to be brave and just grab and pen and scribble away!!
