This is one of the cards I submitted. I chose it because I really love to use my Aqua Painters, and I really love the flower, cosmos, which this reminds me of.
I used Rose Red and Crushed Curry for the flowers, and Old Olive on the stems. I also added a shadow of Pool Party to the right sides of the flowers and stems, and to the background of the sentiment piece.
The sentiment "thanks for helping me grow" is just the thing for a teacher appreciation card, or Mother's Day!
I added a strip of Burlap Ribbon behind the sentiment, and ruffed it up a bit for a frayed look. I also used one of the burlap strands as antennae for the butterfly, which was punched from the corrugated cardstock (love that stuff!)
Thanks for stopping by today!
