Thinking of You


I needed a card for a quick note to a friend and this is what I came up with.  The image is Geraniums from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  After coloring the image with Copic markers, I applied a layer of sticker paper and covered it with Cloud Nine velvet glitter.

I die cut the Spellbinders frame (Fleur de Lis) and then die cut the center (Classic Squares Large).  Cayenne Star embossing powder was used to add color to the frame.

The sentiment is by Stampers Anonymous and is stamped in Distress Ink (Stormy Sky) and fussy cut out.

Copics used: petals - R02, R08; leaves - YG93, YG95, YG97, YG99; background - B0000, BV000, BV02
