Just for You



Used a Hero Arts "coloring layer" set, For You Flowers, to create a focal point at the bottom of the card. 

I have not had great luck with layering stamps.  However, I got this the first try.  I followed the pictorial directions on the back of the set and placed the layers over the previously stamped image.  Using the MISTI ensured a near perfect alignment.  I'm pretty dependent on the MISTI -- what a great tool.


I used Altenew inks for the flower and Memento Pear and a green from the Hero Arts poinsettia kit for the leaves.  I rubbed the Pear ink on a strip of white cardstock to add some green to the bottom.

I love how this turned out!  The white space on the top two thirds of the card is the perfect balance for the sentiment and flower.  It also works with this week's fantastic MUSE card challenge #153 by Tracey McNeely, which you can find here.

MOOD WHEN DONE = Ok!
