I'm Here!!!

I survived my plane trip to Cindy's and we've had a blast so far! A little shopping, a little stamping and a whole lot of fun! This is going to be an awesome weekend! I have some really exciting news to share with you all, but you're going to have to wait until I get back home! Here's a little card to tide you over...

I just love this Doodle Leaf Flower by Hero Arts! It reminds me of the Doodle This set in the Stampin Up Spring Mini, except it's a little cleaner - more my style! And the patterns inside are so much fun to color.

I started by stamping the Doodle Leaf Flower on Pearlized White Paper Accents paper and then coloring in with Chocolate Chip, Rose Red and Regal Rose markers. Next I stamped the Thinking of You sentiment from Hero Arts on some Perhaps Basic Grey paper and trimmed and pierced holes across the top and bottom of the strip. I then glued this strip onto more of the Basic Grey paper and attached with Making Memories rhinestone brads.

I then matted the doodle flower on chocolate chip and rose red, skewing each layer to give the card a little movement. I used my 3/4" circle punch to add some half-circle Rose Red tabs to the top and bottom. I finished the card off by sketching a frame around the flower image and adding lots of Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds sparkle accents.
