Good Sunday morning! I am so sorry that I forgot to post yesterday. It was a weird kind of day. I never even made it down to my stamp room (gasp). I guess I was out way too late the night before and just felt lazy. So, here I am and I am thinking about the week ahead. You all can think of me on Thursday and Friday as I will be conducting Parent/Teacher conferences. It's just not my favorite thing to do. I don't mind talking to the parents, but I just hope that they aren't too surprised by what I have will have to say.
Today's card is one of my favorites! I really liked how this turned out. I used a stamp set called Flower Fancy. It is a two-step set but I chose to use it as a one-step set on this card. I just stamped the flower and branch in Chocolate Chip twice - once on the white panel and once on a scrap piece (just for the flower). Then I used a blender pen to color in the leaves and flower. I cut the flower out, put a brad in the center, and popped it up. There are even some "speckles" around the card from Itty Bitty Backgrounds. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy!
