THANK YOU

Inspired by all the Little Things is a wonderful new challenge with gorgeous photos for inspiration - and the photo this week is especially inspiring.  



At first I was going to watercolor the flower from the April My Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts, but then after pondering the photo for a bit, I thought vellum for the flower would be best.  I white embossed the flower and leaves.  The flower was colored on the back with Copics (BV02 & BV04).  Decided to let that be the focal point and left the leaves uncolored.  The frame was die cut from the same cs as the card base and popped up with foam tape as was the flower.  The sentiment is from the same set as the flower.


Virginia's View is also having a Link-Up party with a friendship card as the theme so am entering this card there also.

Thanks for visiting today and love to read your kind comments.
