Thinking of You




I made this card for Digi Doodle Shop Challenge #90, Embossing.  I just recently found this really lovely digi image at Digi Doodle Shop.  It's part of a set called "Fancy Frames" and you can find it here.  No matter how many times I visit the store I see something I haven't seen before.  I just love that!  I really enjoyed coloring this one.  It's colored with Copics and I added glitter to the edges of the flowers.  I used my Martha Stewart  Scoring Board to emboss lines around the main image.  It's a really great tool at a very reasonable price.

I just realized after posting that my center image is a little off.  Doesn't it just kill you when you notice something after posting!  I was sitting here wondering why the sentiment looked a little crooked.  Oh well, not taking it apart now.  Aaargh!

Oh Diane, I have seen many a flower card and this one is tremendously beautiful! Your glitter, your colors and the framing with the SU or Martha or Scor board is outstanding. What an addition that is. I have a Rubber King stamp like this and my goodness, never would I achieve this mastery. The coloring Diane is fabulous and just the color blend and where you put the focus makes the card just amazing - truly. I thank you for bringing your card over to us at Stamping with the Dragon and hope you will join us next time. We'd love to be blessed with your work again! Good luck in the challenges, and of course ours at SWTD. Love and a Hug for your New Year, Samara - DT.

Stunner! Really gorgeous! I'll have to check that digi out. You are really becoming a pro with that camera too. Rarely does glitter show up on a photo.

"No matter how many times I visit the store I see something I haven't seen before. I just love that!"
Couldn't agree more! :)
Your creation is elegant and stylish, but surely I'm not the first one saying this. The glitter and those embossed "frame", sort of simplicity, all that and your colorine makes this something special.
