Floral Thoughts

Good Morning!

A day off from work makes for a great day in the craft room!

My first card will be entered into the Challenges at; Altenew and Simon Says Wednesday, Layer It Up.

I did a little water coloring on this card.  I used the Altenew products; Beautiful Day (stamp and die sets) sentiment from their Magnolias For Her set.

Flowers have been layered using Foam Squares, I doubled them up on the
bottom right flower to make it POP even more. 
Lots of craft paint platters, glitter and sequins for accents.  
Raven Black ink.

My next card will be entered into the Challenges at; Simon Says Monday, Tag It
and Stamp TV, Kindness.

A simple masculine card full of thoughtful love and kindness.  I used the Gina K Designs stamp sets; On My Mind, Poster Board Sentiments and Mommy To Be Diva (little heart).

MFT dies;  Notched Border, Stitched Traditional Tags.
PTI Designer Paper, Argyle Socks.
Enamel Dots.
Corner Punch.

Inks in; Garden Green, Night Of Navy, Pink Pirouette.

Thanks for popping in.....back to the craft room!
