Card Spotlight

Today, it's a quick and simple greeting card. The main reason for the spotlight is to showcase some of the lovely K & Co. decorative papers from the new Mira collection by Brenda Walton. I fell in love instantly with this collection that highlights sunrise yellows and oranges with the contrasting deep spice colorations. It's a fusion of Indian and Eastern influences. The entire collection is gorgeous--and the coordinating embellishments are sublime. (My favorites are the Grand Adhesions Chinese Lantern set.)

This particular card is made from a 5 1/2" x 8" piece of "Golden Poppy" paper scored at 4" for a vertical orientation. Also, used is a small piece of "Paisley Ombre" from the Mira Collection for the tag. I made the tag using Making Memories Tag Maker (medium square aluminum rim). A sugar coated flower diecut and leaf adhered with a pop dot and glue dot respectively complete the look of the card. For the sentiment, I chose a Studio G clear acrylic stamp and Cat's Eye Queue ink in Raw Silk.

Life really is wonderful! I hope you have a super weekend ahead!

Keep Crafting!
