Happy Birthday

Been a busy week, so it's nice to get uninterrupted time at my desk to finish off some cards and post them... this is my last for the day - it takes more time than your think to just photograph, edit and then post them.
I started with the bowl on this card.... which is actually the cut out of the lolly jar card I made recently.. thought to see if I could get an ombre effect with watercolour pencils...not too bad (pic is not so good).  Then I sought out and die cut the flowers in similar shades to the pencils used and leaves and arranged them in the bowl with a touch of glitter glue, and finished off with a stamped sentiment strip.
I am playing along with CAS Mix Up June challenge - Ombre and with AAA Cards - who are celebrating their 5th Birthday - congrats ladies.
Thanks for visiting, I really appreciate it - happy card making.



  1. Love that ombre bowl, Robyn! The soft shades are so pretty and the bowl matches beautifully with the flower bouquet! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

  2. What a pretty ombre bowl/vase, Robyn! I love it. The shades made with your watercolor pencils are so soft and have a slight nice texture (like a real bowl). Shine from the glitter glue is a wonderful touch! So glad to see your card in the CAS Mix Up gallery.
