Big & Bold


Today's card makes a bold statement! I colored the SU! image with Copics, and made some leaves from black cardstock, popping everything up on foam tape. The dsp was a snippet from my stash that matched the flower, and I added a little daffodil delight color just inside of the punched borders. The sentiment is from Casual Fridays and I finished this with a big black brad in the center.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

SOS 200 - Big, Bold, and Beautiful



Wishing you all a happy day, and thanks so much for stopping by!

I know you did the leaves in black for a special reason and they make the beauty of this gorgeous flower stand out nicely, but it kinds of reminds me of my black thumb when it comes to indoor flowers or plants. LOL This card is stunning.Enjoy your day.
