Just For You


I thought I'd take a break from holiday and winter cards to refresh my soul with a pretty flower card, LOL!  It is such a long time from fall to spring again.  The beautiful image is the Poppy & Bud digital stamp from the Digi Doodle Shop.  My layout was inpsired by this week's OWH Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge #47.


My card base is Lovely Lilac layered with PTI White then Wild Wasabi Patterned Paper from the Stampin' Up Prints Pack.  The shadow layer is Wild Wasabi cardstock die cut and embossed using the Labels One Nestabilities.  It is hard to tell in this photo but I wrapped White Grosgrain Ribbon around it then added a beautiful bow in front.  

The image was printed on PTI White and colored in using copic markers.  As always, I paper pierced around the edges before layering it on to a slightly larger piece of Lovely Lilac.  The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI White then cut out to layer on Lovely Lilac.  To embellish the card I added two small Silver Rhinestones along the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

Karen, There is just something about this card that I really like. Perhaps the focal image turned just at a slight angle or maybe the colors. It is very pleasing to the eye. Blessings, Louise

Wow! The colors are great and the elements you used are perfect. The nesties label just makes it even though much of the detail of it is covered.
