Flower Garden

BREAKING NEWS!!!!!  We have a new BABE in the house.  Please welcome Carla - otherwise now known as CARLABELLA - your going to love her, her work is amazing.  See more of Carla's creations at  Congrats Carla.

It seems like forever since I have posted last, but I'm back today with a card to share with you.
As you know I love flowers, and flowers can be for almost any occasion which makes this a very versatile card.

Today, I'm using Flower Garden.

Image was stamped on cream cardstock using rich cocoa memento ink.  I then used copics for my base layer  YR0000 & YR000,  YG91, YG93.  I then added shading using prismacolour pencils and blended with gamsol. After cutting the image out I sponged versamagic wheat and a bit of scattered rose distress ink around the image with die in place.

Paper is by Glitz called French Kiss.  I wanted to keep this kind of simple, didn't want to take away from the flowers, so I cut a piece of paper from the same paper pack using a Cheery Lynn doily die. I know it might be kind of hard to see because it does blend in very well.

To finish it off I used some champagne colour silk ribbon, glitter  and some pearls.

Just a reminder, you still have time to play along in our sketch challenge on friday (see below post for sketch). Email Emily your card by thursday night. By doing so you have a chance to win some bella bucks!

Thanks for stopping by today, see you on Friday.
