Smiles & Silver Flowers

by Karen @ Carefree Creations - Smiles & Silver Flowers

I created this card for the CASual Fridays challenge – #91 Hi Ho Silver. It is probably hard to tell in the photo, but the stems and large flowers are stamped with silver ink.

I got additional inspiration from this pin – a pattern wallpaper with yellows and greys. I added blue because I didn’t want the silver to get lost as grey on my card, and besides, I love Baja!

I wanted a sentiment that wouldn’t get lost in my pattern paper, but I also didn’t want to cover up all that hard work, so I kept the card pretty sparse. I think the shine from the silver ink is just enough that no embellishment is necessary.

I did toy around with doing more than just one word of the sentiment with the yellow, but it got too busy. I do like how the one pop of yellow brings in the background but also focuses you to the sentiment.

Thanks for taking a peek!
