What a wonderful gallery Vera has!!! I chose Vera's Vases in Vogue to CASE for a birthday card for my DIL.
Last week I spent a perfectly delightful afternoon in Fort Lauderdale having lunch and shopping with two SCSers, cherylquilts and BeckyTE. One of my purchases was this wonderful Lockhart stamp and I couldn't wait to ink it up. Used watercolour paper, an aqua-painter and SU watercolour crayons. Added a little sponging to highlight the image.
Things I changed:
- instead of the partial mat and faux stitching, I used a full mat behind the image
- used a cuttlebug embossing folder for the background panel instead of designer paper
- added a layer to the sentiment panel
Thanks for looking! And thanks to Vera for the inspiration... :)

Heather, you're actually on time for a FS challenge. So, miracles do happen!! LOL!! I was so excited to see your upload just now. Still "green with envy" over meeting with other SCS's while on vacation, but I'll get over it eventually. I see the Prez of The VIP Punch Pals, Benz, is trying to get recruits to do a Three Punchkateerz Challenge. Wouldn't that be a hoot?? Oh, back to you card, I'm so sorry. I'm having Heather w/drawal I guess. LOVE your stamped vase and flowers and you've colored it wonderfully. Love your sponging, that awesome ef b/g, ribbon, rhinestones and, of course, your TRIPLE oval punches!!! What a treat to see a new upload today. So glad you are back!! Hugs...XXOO...The Fruitflake

Guess all that laundry got done today. Wow, how great for all of us to see this most wonderful card uploaded today! You're going to set a record with this one. I love your new image which, incidentally, happens to be beautifully colored. Your DIL will love this wonderfully sponged beauty. Gorgeous card.
