Hello, Bloggers! I hope that you are having a wonderfully, happy, sun-filled Sunday! I am so excited that I can finally post cards for a whole week!!! It has been so fun to get back into stamping and posting to all of you and it gives me great satisfaction to know that people are looking at my projects! Well, all 3 of you!!
Anyway, here is a card that I came across one day while I was blog surfing. I pretty much copied it color for color, stamp for stamp. I don't think that I changed anything but then I can't remember because I did make this a while back. I know that my friend, Becky, is cringing (or will be when she sees this) at the "green" flower. And, to you, Becky, I want to tell you that I did make this card using other colors but I really didn't like it as well as this one. So, it is the green flower that I post.
Some details that might be hard to notice at first glance - I distressed the blue panel and then popped it up over the ribbon. Then I stamped the flower in River Rock on River Rock and cut it out (the flower is stamped in Bayou Blue on the the white first). The cut out flower is popped up, too. I used the VersaMarker to color in the middle part of the cut out flower to darken it just a bit. And then there is the build-a-brad in the middle! A fun card! Hope you enjoy it, too! Have a great day!!!
