Thank You Mom

Good Morning again.  Thanks for stopping in today.  I hope you enjoy your visit.

The showcase card uses a couple of images from Fred She Said.  I used my Spectrum Noir pens to add some color to the images.

I decided to use a purple/green combo for this card.  I think this has to be one of my favorite color schemes..along with pink/green, pink/brown, pink/black and turquoise/brown.  

I printed off the images on Neenah card stock and colored them in.  I then fussy cut the top layer of flowers and the top butterfly.  I used a Nestabilities circle die to cut out the main image.  I used a piece of Colorbok Lavender card stock to make the scalloped circle with the Nestabilities.  I used pop dots to add the flower layer and the butterfly.

The card begins with a Lavender card base from Colorbok measuring 6" square.  I don't know why I am on a square kick, but I have been making alot of them lately.  I then cut some DP from K and Co. and some purple and green card stock from Colorbok in 1/8th and 1/4th inch increments and layered them alternating between card stock and DP.  I wrapped a purple satin ribbon around the middle and tied a bow, the best one I have ever tied, to the left side.  I then used pop dots to add the focal image.  I used Versa Magic Plumeria ink to stamp the greeting (Studio G) onto white card stock.  I then fussy cut the sentiment and added to the bottom left.  I added some purple flat back pearls to finish off the card.

I hope you find this card pleasing.  I really like the way it turned out.  Thanks for popping in today.  Have a great day.  God bless y'all.
