Special Moments


Hello! I finally got around to creating a card with this bitterroot image from Stately Flowers 3 I colored a few weeks ago! I used images online to help me choose the colors, and saw that those tan colored buds would terrific as a really bold pink and brown combo! Base is Gina K Passionate Pink and both DPs are from the Casual Friday pack. I might not have thought of this particular pack at first glance when I'm thinking about "flowers", but when you hold your images next to you papers you'll start seeing colors and similar motifs like the pointy leaves popping out...

Tracing the undersides with a W-3 Copic creates such a realistic shadow! Greeting is from Mehndi Wishes, I thought the sentiment was perfect with the single gorgeous bloom! I added some teensy adhesive rhinestones to the flower center, stamens and o in "Moment" for some sparkle!

Have a terrific weekend! We have family here celebrating little William's 7th birthday oh my, where does the time go! I remember posting about his THIRD birthday just after I started blogging! Talk to you soon, hugs!
