For You


I CASED another card.  This time from Laurie Schmidlin.  It was my favorite card from the Gina K Designs Release last week.

Here is my card:
I used the Gina K Designs stamp sets; A Little Something, Signs Of Spring and Stately Flowers 8.  I didn't have a big flourish so I used the little flower from A Little Something.  Worked like a charm when stamping with Versa Mark ink to create my background.  Green base portion die cut using My Favorite Things Die-Namics, Snow Drifts.

I took liberties in coloring the Orange Blossoms, typically white, I went with shades of yellow.  Leaves stamped in Wild Wasabi ink.  Sentiment in Gold Embossing Powder.  A little torn Vellum, gold ribbon and Sakura Yellow Glitter Pen for accents.  And last but not least, a sweet little butterfly accent, Martha Stewart Trio Punch, blue, white and Vellum layers. 
I adore Laurie Schmidlin's should check out her amazing work!
This card will be entered into the following Challenges;
Simon Says Monday, Beautiful Butterfly
Simon Says Wednesday, Make It Girlie
Double D, April Showers Bring May Flowers
ScrapyLand, Oh Happy Spring
