Calendula Flower

Hi everyone! Today I've got a beautiful floral card to share with you.  I haven't done as many floral cards lately and have to say I really miss them because their beauty brightens my day.  The floral image used on today's card is the Calendula October Flower of the Month digital stamp by Clear Dollar Stamps.

My card base is Summer Sun layered with White then Kraft cardstock embossed using the Happy Birthday embossing folder. The shadow strips are Green Galore. I added tons of stitching and white satin ribbon with a matching bow. The image was printed on White and colored in using copic markers. To further embellish the card I added silver rhinestones in each corner.

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

This card is so beautiful. I love how you have placed the bow at the end of the stem - very nice! I have added you to my blog roll this month, so sorry I hadn't done that last month...just a glitch I guess! xo

Oh, Karen...this is beautiful! My birthday is in October and I never really liked the marigold as my flower but I would take it if they all looked like this! :D
