So Glad

I made this card using the Fifth Avenue Floral images and the watercoloring technique found here. I used some beautiful shimmery pink cardstock that Heidi gave me {thanks my friend} and used an assortment of pink reinkers to color the flowers. After the flowers were colored and dried, I cut them out and curled them around a stencil to make them more realistic. I popped them up on foam tape and stuck some leaves underneath them. The leaves were made by punching with an oval on folded cardstock, and then running them through the crimper. I added a touch of stickles to the center and stamens of the smaller flowers. The background was embossed with the Swiss Dots ef, and the sentiment is from SU!
Have a great Thursday and thanks so much for taking the time to come visit us :)
