Cool Flowers

Hello Everyone,


For today I will be playing along with Cupcake Inspirations
. So here is my card for today, enjoy!


This card has a bright white base with an ivory Morracoon diecut overlay.
I decided to keep some of the pieces for an inlay. I thought it added a nice touch. 

Above: What I like most about this card is its sketchy quality of the stamp. I didn't have to be too precise when water-coloring the flowers. Below/Left: The kraft cardstock is stacked on four layers of white cardstock giving it some dimension. It really does allow the sentiment to quite literally pop and the little banner finishes off the sentiment nicely.  Bottom/Right: Another example of its sketchy nature. Also, look at the subtle contrast between the white and off white colors.


Challenges Entered:
Cupcake Inspirations: CIC 492- Color Challenge.



Here in the U.S., it is Staff Appreciation Week. Though we can't be in person to thank them for all they do; the next best thing is to mail them a handmade card. This one is slated for our administrative assistant for my children's school. She does everything! So I thought this card would be a good pick for her. I mailed it out yesterday and have yet to hear back if at all. No worries! Either way, I hope she enjoys the card and the message I left inside.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. Lots of good crafting vibes headed your way. I hope you all have a fantastic day and please stay safe and healthy. 


All the best,
