You Are Amazing

Greetings, friends. Mindy with you today to share a card that was so bright and cheery, I wanted to share it with you.  It will soon be on the way to a good friend, whose birthday is the same day as mine.

I started by using watercolor to color two beautiful Pristine Lilies from the stamp set by Heartfelt Creations. After they were dry, I fussy cut them out and set them aside to fully dry.  I then layered a sheet of white card stock cut from the Blueprints 13 die from My Favorite Things with the stitched edge.  I then colored a sheet of watercolor paper with Alizarin Crimson Color Bursts from Ken Oliver Crafts, and then added a small bit of the Orange to give it a two-tone coloring.  If you haven't tried the Color Bursts yet, I suggest you try the set of all six colors.  The colors are amazing, and priced very reasonably, and can be mixed to form the most beautiful backgrounds. From my two-toned paper I cut the Decorative Labels Eight die from Spellbinders and adhered it to the background.

As I was trying to decide on how to place my flowers, I found one of the Rectangles 6-in-1 Frame die from Impression Obsession laying on my desk, so I adhered it on an angle on my card front. I then placed my flowers inside the frame using Joy! Foam Pads Large and tied a dotted swiss ribbon bow to add with a tiny tag.  The sentiment on the tag is from the Just the Right Words stamp set by Just Rite Clear Stamps.

I hope you have enjoyed my card, and will visit again for daily card inspiration at Classy
