Pansy for a friend
My hubby took my vehicle to work this morning because the roads were a bit slick. I drive the SUV and it just affords more protection in the snow.
Anyway, onto my card for today. This one I made for the free for all challenge on Splitcoaststampers. We were to create a mostly blue card with flowers.
I have been wanting to use this pansy image from Marks Finest Papers the "sending happy thoughts" set. I thought it would look perfect colored with blue prismacolor pencils. The sentiment on the tag is from the "dogwood blossoms set" . I was happy with how my card turned out. So here are some details.
I colored the image with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. Layered it over some marina mist cardstock and a spellbinders rectangle die. Used a Cherry Lynn flourish die under that panel and then another marina mist panel with designer paper.
The background is a cuttlebug embossing folder and I sponged it with marina mist ink. I added some white mesh ribbon from May Arts and then marina mist ribbon from Stampin-Up. Punched a mini tag to complete the card.
Some other challenges for my card:
1. Amusing Challenges wants us to use die-cuts. I used 2 on my card.
2. Catered Crop has a "ravenous about ribbon" challenge. I used mesh and grosgrain ribbon.
3. Gingerloft Challenge is all about spring.
4. Let's Ink It Up has a "show us your flowers" challenge.
