So Happy Bouquet

Saturday, May 5, 2012

Hi Friends! I hope you are all having a great weekend. It's ballet recital weekend here, and we're having a weekend guest, so we're staying busy; therefore, I'll be brief.
This is a congratulatory card, suitable for a wedding, anniversary, graduation, even a birthday--any kind of celebration. 

I colored the image with Sharpie markers, and shaded the bg inside the die with chalk.

The navy layer was embossed with a Textile Texture embossing folder, and I used a text background stamp for the lavender layer.

I used a Garden Trellis border punch on the inside of the card, to match the front, and left plenty of room for personalization.

I'll be entering this card in the following challenges:
Crazy 4 Challenges 135 C4C135: Gardening or the Great Outdoors
Creative Craft Challenges2: Anything Goes
Moving Along With the Times: Summer Sunshine

Thanks for stopping by today, and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
