Photo Inspiration from the Rainbow Lady

Hi there, todays card is my DT card for this weeks challenge over at Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog where we have a photo inspiration challenge for you so hop on over and check out the gorgeous pic to inspire you.

Once you've seen the inspiration pic you'll see why I've chosen these stamps for my card. The stamps are from the 'Christmas Fusion' themeplate from Chocolate Baroque, this is one of my favourite stamp sheets and I adore this medallion stamp. I stamped the image 7 times and embossed with gold ep. I painted  the images with twinkling h20s and cut them out before layering them up with 3d foam pads. I've created a border using the small poinsettia stamp from the same stamp sheet, again painting with twinkling h2os. I've added pink and gold card for matting and layering and some white card embossed with 'swiss dots' embossing folder.
This pic shows the colours of the medallion a little better (although the poinsettia is actually a very bright pink and the greens are shades of lime) and also catches some of the shimmer from the paints

I'm entering this card in the following challenges

Stampin Sisters in Christ: use one of your oldest stamp sets
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge: bright colours and/or sparkle
Jellypark: non traditional Christmas colours

  4. I love any images with these flowers. These pinks are lovely with the greens & so evocative of the plant's colouring. The border you created is striking too & the matting superbly effective.
