Happy Leap Day! I for one am thankful that today is the last day of February. The shortest month of the year is often the longest one for me. Bring on Spring!
I don't have a card to celebrate Leap Day - not sure what that would look like anyway - but I do have a cute Birthday/Celebration card.The colors I used on my card are from this week's challenge at Pals Paper Arts: Pear Pizzazz, Night of Navy, Blushing Bride.
For something different, I embossed the flower with White embossing powder and then added a wash of Blushing Bride ink with a bit extra in the center. No need to fussy cut the flower - just punch it with the Pansy Punch.
Tip: To balance the large flower, add a few smaller, punched flowers in the same color. Odd numbers are generally more pleasing to the eye.
Another tip: The upper part of the white panel, especially the right corner, was too bare for me so I added the silver baker's twine and let the ends dangle over the white panel.
