So I'm back with another new card, for my friend Sheri. Remember that Garage Sale I mentioned, yesterday? She is the one that invited me to join in on the Garage Sale with everyone. She is a wonderful wife and great friend, she has 3 cute, energetic children that she is homeschooling. I think she needs a nice thank you card that looks pretty, to lift her spirits :)
I used Flourishes "Calendar Set #2" colored in with my Tobows and cut it out with my craft knife and popped it up on popdots. I used Spellbinders Labels #18, Fancy Tags #3, Ovals and Scalloped Ovals under the rose image. I used some pearls from a Zva package to add to the elegance. I used Flourishes Classic White Cardstock and I don't know the color of the green, but it isn't such a neon springy green in real life, it's more of a light mossy sage.
This card's shape was really inspired by one of Dawn Burnworth's (from Flourishes DT) cards called "Flourishes Calla Lilies". She used this exact die in an upright position. I kept going back to that card, thinking, "Why didn't I think of that?" :) It really was one of those cards for me, still keep clicking back to it to admire the artistry of it, I just love it so much! - Great job, Dawn :)
