Recycled card

Hi all,

Made a card yesterday after a week.  I have been busy with my son's school, 3days a week and birthday parties during weekends. Only yestarday i got sometime when i had tried something new to me. I have seen this in pinterest. Its a shaving cream technique. I have created a background with shaving cream and food colour mixed with water as i don't have any inks. I have used the colours from Itsy bitsy color challenge
Its one of my favourite combination colours .  I had used a tag from jeans. I did't get chance to take the pic of only the shaving cream technique background. hope you can see it properly, it is very good in real. I used the sketch from  case this sketch 22
Added the quilled flower to the tag.Used washi tape under the tag to follow the sketch. I stamped the pattern on the card and coloured with water colour pencils. I learnt the combed leaf from  here http://anastasiaw.blogspot.ch/2013/03/quilling-leaves-with-comb-part-2_7.html, she is a wonderful quiller.  Finally added the ribbon to the tag.

What a lovely background you have created.
There is a challenge on Feline Playful which is about creating backgrounds. Maybe this card could go there as well.
