Evening Sun

For this card, I finally saw an opportunity to use a piece of roughly textured paper I found in a stationery shop and had been hoarding. It made an interestingly textured base for my sponged background. I began by considering Time Out's challenge #83, a CAS challenge of a beautiful card by Hannelie from Desert Diva and then realised that Just Add Ink's sketch challenge #360 shared the common element of a central circle, so decided to combine them.

Made using: 
Stampin' Up:
Ink: So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Rose Red, Blackberry Bliss 
Paper: Whisper White
Perfect Pairings stamp set (sentiment)
Stitched Framelit and Circles Collection dies
Other: ek flower punch, Kaisercraft flower wreath die set.


  1. Oh my word! Such a richly sponged centre - it's gorgeous and I love how the colours of your sunset are echoed in your sentiment. It all contrasts beautifully wiht the delicate white frame and base. It's a masterpiece.

  2. Gorgeous! Such a lovely vibrant panel and beautifully balanced with the white space..Love it! Thanks for sharing at Just Add Ink.
