I gave Leslie her b-day card yesterday, so I can finally upload. Since Leslie is not only my Demo, long time friend and "leslierich" the pressure is on to create something special. I did get to use the main image piece that I had actually started on a playdate with Leslie. We were trying out gamsol blending for the 1st time. After several hours (good grief) and much love here is my creation for the so talented Leslie. Thanks for looking.......

Whoops, I used Rose Red not Ruby. Rose went well with the magenta prisma pencil. I forgot to mention Canvas as one of my stamps. Also thanks to cwilliams and the resources forum for helpful hints on gamsol blending......

There is definitely extra pressure when you're stamping something for someone as talented as Leslie. You did a beautiful job on this and I'm sure she loved it. I love all the brads used for the flower centers. I've yet to try the prisma and gamsol technique myself. TFS. Linda

This is soooo pretty -- I'm sure she just loved it!!! You have beautiful colors and coloring -- I'm always impressed when the entire b/g's are colored -- patience!!! Wonderful job!!! Love the flower centers, such a great touch, and your hanging tag w/hardware. What a wonderful card!!!
Nancy, this is wonderful! Love the rich coloring and flower centers. The little primas are great and I really like the tag hanging from the sentiment! I know what you mean about pressure, when it's a card for your demo!
