A Special Thought...

So, I've been able to get some cards done lately which is amazing since my son is always demanding my attention.  :-)  Today I brought some stuff down to the kitchen to make a card.  I had this vision in my head and it needed to get out!  It all started with the current Muse challenge.  I just love the card that Deanna Jean made.  It really made me think of spring and summer and right now I'm really wanting winter to be over.  :-)  Here's her card...

Wouldn't you just love to get that in the mail?  Anyway, I had an anniversary card to make for my in-laws and thought I would give the idea in my head a go.  Here's my card...


This involved some stamping in white StazOn with the flower stamp then sponging over top the burgundy and rust dye ink.  Then stamping the flower in the two colours overtop.  Then I stamped the sentiment in black.  The flourish is underneath just to add a hint of green.  Layered the stamped panel on some rust paper and attached it with 3D dots.  I think it turned out pretty good. 

Anyway, that's all for now.  Have a fabulous day!

Supplies:  Stamps all by Inkadinkado.  Dye Ink:  Razzleberry, Dusty Durango, Mellow Moss by Stampin' Up!  StazOn Ink: Jet Black and White.  Cardstock:  white by Recollections, and rust by Bazill Basics.
