Colour Me 61

When Tangelo Twist came out in last year's catalogue, I wasn't really a fan but it has definitely grown on me in the interim. So it was with pleasure that I started out to make something for this week's monochromatic challenge at Colour Me.
To make things even better, it's Friday evening - the start of the weekend and absolutely best of all, today I got a parcel of goodies from the USA! (It all arrived less than a week after ordering.) Oh my word - a chance to play with new stuff and a lively colour! So, I ended up with a cheerful birthday card, although I almost made it a get well/feel better card.

What a great new stuff playtime it turned out to be. New stuff used: the MFT Gerbera Daisy Die, MFT Stitch Dot circle stax and the Tim Holtz Celebrate stamp. So pretty much everything really! The daisy die is fantastic. I curled it and layered it and put dimensionals between some layers ... so many possibilities. It could turn out differently every time! The textured circle to use for a centre is just adorable too.

Such a good start to the weekend! And international one-day World Cup cricket to go to on Sunday.

Card: Black, Whisper White, Tangelo Twist
Stamps: Tim Holtz Collection Celebrate
Ink: Black
Other: MFT Gerbera Daisy Die, MFT Stitch Dot circle stax, dimensionals, black marker to colour cut edges
