Hello blog friends! Hope this Friday has your spirits high and ready for the weekend. I am still (yes this is ridiculous now) recovering from this awful cold. I can't remember the last time I was this sick this long...it's been a loooonnnngggg week. Tomorrow is Reilly's Pinewood Derby race, I hope I am well enough to go and not contaminate the masses. uggh!
In the meantime, it has taken me forever to finish this because I just couldn't stop coughing long enough to focus....but I do have a card for you today!
This is from a new to me stamp company called Flourishes. They have gorgeous stamps. I am one that really really appreciates detailed stamps, and Flourishes has them. This is from A Year in Flowers Calendar set 1. For some reason I can't locate set 1, only set 2 and 3 which leads me to believe that they are currently sold out of set 1. I remember reading somewhere that they don't take backorders so I am going to assume this set will reappear on the website once it is back in stock. Check out 2 and 3 and you will get an idea of the set. Now back to the card this is February's flower which is Primrose. Confession, I actually went to the internet to see what color primrose's should be before coloring...I wasn't sure. *grin* The base of the card is mellow moss and the patterned paper is Almost Amethyst matched with Almost Amethyst cs cut out and embossed with my scalloped square nestabilities. I dotted the inside of the scallops using my Clear Star jelly roll pen (I found mine at Joann). The flower was stamped in Pallete Noir black ink on Sahara Sand paper and then cut out. I colored the flower with my copics - BV02 Prune, V17 Amethyst and BV04 Blue Berry for the flowers and YG63 Pea Green, G40 Dim Green and YG03 Yellow Green for the stems and leaves. I then went back and highlighted with my jelly roll pen again because it makes everything sparkle. Sparkley is good. :-) The saying is stamped in Perfect Plum on Shimmery White CS and then punched out with the Modern Label Punch fro SU. The blings in the corner I bought last year at a retreat from the bling lady Crystal. Hope you enjoyed my very very late thank you cards and have a great weekend! Happy Stamping!
