Heartfelt Wishes

After spending a nice long Memorial Day weekend in West Virginia, I was having a hard time trying to make a card for today’s sketch challenge on SCS (SC283). Next time I will be taking some stamping supplies with me to the mountains!

I used the colors from StampTV’s chocolate, green, and ivory challenge (which made me think of Stampin’ Up!’s Brocade Background DSP). I puzzled two pieces with the same design but different color combinations together in the background. The flowers were colored with Copic markers.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi Vera! What a sweet blog you have! I love this most recent card. The flowers are lovely, the bg papers lovely, and that punched border adds a daintiness. TFS!
    Hugs, Judi

    Vera, you did a beautiful job on the coloring but also on the whole card. The colors meshed so well in your design and the white punched “lace” accented it perfectly.

    Very pretty Vera. I have been holding on to the paper you used. I guess it time for me to pull it out. Thanks for the inspiration!
