Thank you Maryland

The mid-week challenge over at Stars & Stamps blog this week is to create a card with layers. No problem!! I have more of a problem making a card without layers! Sandy has been creating free digis for us lately to make OWH cards. She's been making state flowers and birds and you can find them on the above link. MD was the first state she created, and I just loved coloring these beautiful images! I hand cut the largest flower, glued it to the green galore background and ran it through the Big Kick using the SU square lattice embossing folder. I just love using this technique on my cards! The main panel was popped up with dimensionals, and the bird was hand cut and glued down to the top. This was quick and easy, but I'm pleased with the way this one turned out. I can't wait to work on some of the other state digis she's completed next!
Thanks for dropping in to say "hello" and I wish you a wonderful evening!

Carol
