A Bloom And Her Trio

Hi everyone!  My card was created for the "Anything Goes" challenge hosted by Pixie Cottage Stamps in honor of Operation Write Home.  Operation Write Home sends blank handmade greeting cards to our nation's heroes for them to write home on as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.  They are celebrating their birthday all month long with daily challenges listed on OWH Stars & Stamps.  The beautiful floral image featured on today's card is the A Bloom And Her Trio digital stamp by Pixie Cottage Stamps.

My card base is Ruby Red layered with White Cardstock then Daisyd's patterned paper stitched around the edges. I wrapped two strips of white lace and blue grosgrain ribbon around the card base and taped the ends down on the back side. The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers then I used my BG0000 to highlight around the image. I die cut and embossed the image using the Classic Ovals Large Nestabilities and layred it on Ruby Red die cut and embossed using the Beaded Ovals Nestabilities. To embellish the card I added a matching blue bow and flower gems.

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