Thank you, Judy, for your faithful stewardship of the TLC. ((((You)))) will be missed. I have been inspired by your creativity for years.
My card has at least 6 textures. Embossing with Clear detail ep, embossing with Stampendous Fragments powder, a rose and copper mix, glittered Washi tape that has a sand texture, a felt posy with a pearl center, micro mini beads on some of the leaves in the panel, and staples. The sentiment: plant the seed of friendship and reap a bouquet of happiness is stamped on a vellum diecut heart. I used Tim Holtz 'Distress Crayons' to paint the flowers. This background is an Anna Griffin 'All Night Media' stamp.
This card is part of a three way challenge using the same image and putting our personal spins on it. Once complete we are to mail it off to surprise the recipient. So this will go in the mail this morning. I had fun coloring the background and playing in our fellow splitcoastie's MARVELOUS studio. Making it ready to send it on it's way was icing on the cake!

The black embossing shows the detail of this lovely stamp so well and adds a velvety richness with the colors. The felt flower, micro beads and faux stitching on the vellum sentiment panel add to the vintage feel. I can see this as a velvet pillow adorning your marvelous home! Totally Susan and fabulous. Thanks for the chance to create lasting memories and friendships. Big hug!!

More tears of JOY looking at this beauty paired with a perfect and memorable sentiment of our time together....so well spent! My mouth is just hanging open with the richness of colors and textures playing off of each other. Both you and Carla really let Anna's stamp shine with her intended vision of florabunda. I am so wowed!
