This is a card I made this weekend with an image I've been wanting to use for a long time. I'm glad I finally did. It would be a great image for Easter, but also would make a nice Sympathy card.
Originally, I planned to submit this to a challenge CAS119 which was "Word Inspiration: GIFT". I thought this would be perfect, but then I realized that CAS means "Clean and Simple"! I guess this doesn't really fit this category though! Oh, well! :-(
Paper: solar white (Neenah), mariposa mat stack (DCWV), chablis (bazzills), old olive (SU), black (?)
Ink: black ink (momento, versafine)
Accessories: prismacolor pencils, mineral spirits, labels 4 die (Spell), framed tulips EF (SU), stylus, branch with leaves die (Sizzix), paper flowers, pearl swirls, (Recoll.), accent stems (Mike's), bird punch, flower punch (EKS)
