Delightful Flower Vine

Happy Thursday Everyone! Today's post is a special card I made today, using the New Anna Griffin die called Flower Vine. I fell in love with it recently, when a friend of mine, Diane Hover, featured it in three cards on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog.  I immediately had to order it because of the many different mediums Diane used on hers, all of which I have on hand as usual.  

I began my card by cutting the die from off white card stock, and embossing it at the same time with my Cuttlebug machine.  Then using my Copic Markers, I colored and shaded the flowers and leaves with Blush Pink and Lipstick Natural on the flowers and Pistachio green on the leaves. I mounted the die on a piece of peachy pink card stock, along with a Ocean Blue printed tag from the Prima Hancock Park Tag Pad.  I added the sentiment, "Delight in the Little Things" banner in the top left hand corner, and a Hero Arts "Blossom" in the lower right corner before attaching on a silver gray A2 card base. 

I have entered this card in the Classy Cards n' Such Challenge #21, Vintage Hues, using three colors found in their inspiration photo provided, and the #AG-2002206 Anna Griffin Flower Vine die found in the Classy Cards n' Such shop.

I hope you will click on over to Beverly's shop and check out all the wonderful supplies she has to offer.  She is a Texas neighbor, and has a wonderful online shop full of tons and tons of goodies for paper crafters everywhere! And she is one of the nicest ladies around, if you don't see something in her shop that you need, drop her a line, and I bet she will do her best to get it for you.

Have a wonderful evening, and enjoy your stamping and crafting projects. The time you spend creating, will be most rewarding in the long run.  Enjoy!
