Relay for Life Fundraiser Cards

For the last three or so years I have been attending a fundraiser for the Cairns Lion Dancers Relay for Life team (you can donate here).  Organised by the energetic Glenda and our card kits created by the talented Ruth Massey Stampin Up Demonstrator.  Thanks to Stampin Up who are so generous in donating prizes for this fun night.  I was lucky and won some paper, and two rolls of ribbon.  Also got to make these wonderful cards.  I so love the woodgrain stamp we used as the background to this card and the simple addition of a string of gold sequins around the bottom flower really finished this pretty card.  I realised that I have not added the sentiment which is on a tab and runs across the pink flower. I had thought I might use this as a card for my Mum on Mother's Day.  So was waiting to add that sentiment when I got home. Changed my mind.

Amazing how satisfying it is to stamp splodges of ink and black lines.  It doesn't show in this photo but the little hearts on the vellum are silver....really pretty.  I like how easily this card went together and such lovely colours.

I really like this card.  The demo card had the reverse side of the black banner with spots but I liked the writing.  The demo card also had the white front panel attached directly to the white base card.  My friend, Helen and I decided that a layer of another colour card stock would make the white panel pop even more.  I went for the Blushing Pink as I had some on hand.   

This is what was waiting on the table for each of us when we arrived.  Yes, Ruth and Glenda had been very busy creating at least 20 roses and the three card kits for inside the bag.

Here I am hard at it......I think I am holding my tongue right. :-)
