Land of the rainbow gold

Sharing a card I made for a friend’s birthday featuring a couple of images from Make it Crafty, Tulip Garden and Wattle Tree Flower.

I cropped both images to just have a small flower as this is actually a card for a guy.  I chose the images as he is originally from The Netherlands but now calls Australia home and he’s also a landscaper.  I layered the flowers over a 40 I computer generated.  The images are watercoloured and the 40 ended up a bit distressed, which I rather like, as my laser printer decided to print a bit unevenly on the watercolour paper.

My sentiment is a fabby chippie from Make it Crafty, which I coloured up in shades of orange and then added shine to with a few layers of UTEE.  I felt the card needed a little something and chose to add in a few sequins so I could play along with the current challenge at Double D.

Over at Creative Knockouts they are running a birthday challenge so I am linking my card up there.  I’m also entering it in the current anything goes challenge at Crafty Catz.
