Big Day Celebration - The Card Concept #33

My card came about as a default design, after I failed to centre the Big Day greeting in the middle of the Chalkboard Paper banner. I wasn't about to waste it, so once the ink dried, I ran washi tape down the left side to balance it all. I have to admit that I do rather like that feature! Also, love these little flowers punched out with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. I'm using these punches all the time as these small accents are perfect finishing touches on cards.
 Melon Mambo is a favourite of mine, it's so girlie, and with all the black & grey, there was a need for a bright colour accent. Flowers, glimmer paper and rhinestones all help the party mood!

The Card Concept have given us a stimulus picture with these splashes of hot pink, and geometric shapes on the walls and ottoman, I hope there is an echo of that in my Clean & Layered work. Thanks for reading my blog.                                                   Cheers,                                                                                              Rachel


  1. I love the chalkboard look, and the sparkle really makes it pop! Thanks for joining us this week at The Card Concept :)

  2. Thanks for playing at TCC:) I LOVE the polka-dots!!

  3. clever way to "fix" your card with the washi tape - you shouldn't have told us and then we'd think it was a part of the design:-) anyway a fun card anyone would love to receive!

  4. Your bold pink and black combination are very eye catching! I love the little flowers and the chalkboard.

  5. Hey Rachel - your card is just gorgeous! I love your modern take on the inspiration pic - thanks for joining us at this week at The Card Concept!
