Hello to everyone on this incredibly HOT Wednesday! Good grief! I cannot believe how hot it is here in Montreal! It was like 80 by 9 this morning...totally crazy...I'm so glad we went and bought a little cheap window air conditioner for our bedroom last night...
While I like that it is warmer now, I don't like sweating while doing nothing...I keep remembering living in Seattle and still wearing sweaters at this time! Crazy how different the weather is from one coast to the other.
Well...sharing a sweet card with you today! Even in the heat I managed to work this darling up!
The sweet little image is Blue's Branch from Pollycraft Designs. He's just so sweet, perfect for any occasion :) I colored him in with my colored pencils and mounted him on a scalloped rectangle frame. The flower was suppose to be more red, but I didn't want to start with the red, so I started the shading with pink and gradually made it darker. I love it, even if it is pinker than I wanted :)
Cardz TV's Encouraging Thoughts set.
Then I made my flowers. The large daisy is a cut file from Birds Cards. I rolled it all up and stuck a little bead in the center. I tried making a different type of filler flower for this card. That would be the blue ones :) They are 4 petal cuts that I inked all the edges on, then crinkled up. I think they turned out pretty good. I'll still have to play with making them to figure out exactly how I like them. Then I rolled some of my own roses and arranged them all together.
I strung together a few gorgeous stick pins with some of my beads that I have with me now. Then shoved those into the arrangement for added bling.
It's just such a sweet card. I absolutely love how it turned out and how everything flows together so well :)
