Uniko Stripes and Gerberas

I'm here today with a card I made for the Uniko challenge which has a colour theme with the optional twist of easter, but as easter has now passed us by I've just gone for the colours. I've used the Uniko 'Background Blocks Horizontal Stripes' inked with Memento Dewdrop inks and Uniko 'Pure Florals Gerbera' coloured with pencils and cut with the matching die (I'm so glad I treated myself to that) and to finish I added some Card Candi coloured with a Promarker. I decided against adding a sentiment at this stage and will add one depending on the occasion when I come to send it.



Edited to add:

A very dear blogging friend has brought to my notice that this may not have been the best of photos (taking photos of cards is not one of my strong points) so I'm adding another brighter one

 

 I also managed to incorporate all of the colours in the palette in my card



I've got a few more fabulous uninked Uniko stamps and stencils to have a play with so will have more to show you over the next or so. Thanks for popping by today and for the taking the time to leave a comment and I hope you all have a great weekend.

I love how you've used the beautiful gerbera stamps, Andrea! Great idea to incorporate the colors in the background stripes and the two blue embellies make the perfect punctuation!! Hugs, Darnell
