Simply 'Thinking of You'

Hi there! You've popped in because you know this post is for
the latest challenge over at Just Us Girls
Hosting this week is the Lovely Lisa.
It's our Colour Week (a favourite of mine)

I found it a little hard to get a decent photo.
Sometimes our camera/photo editing doesn't do
our card justice. That is the case here.
I got out an old favourite stamp/punch set from SU
for my card today. It's Petite Petals.
I cut 3 inked with Hampton Art Aqua.
Put them aside to arrange my background.
The first inking is a stamp gifted by a friend
in Memento London Fog. I then added a bit of
grunge in the aqua from SU Timeless Textures.
Cut out a MFT circle frame in SU Brilliant Blue
I used this same card stock for my base.
The grey leaves were cut from a Sizzix die
and inked again from the Timeless Texture Set.
Added Nuvo Drops to the centres of the flowers
which were popped.
Sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers.

Thanks for dropping in -
Hope you will go over and check
our May Guest Patti and the Team's creations
and join us in the Gallery.

I hear you on the photography thing, I am much more interested in making the cards than learning how to use a camera lol. Your card is very beautiful Ina, such lovely colours!

Judy Woodland said...

So pretty, love this. Great design and you used those colors perfectly! Gorgeous!

Vicki Dutcher said...

Your background is perfect with your die cuts!

Verna Angerhofer said...

Wonderful design and I love the gorgeous coloring on it. This is so beautiful!
Photography can be tricky. One has to have the light coming from behind for best results.

This is so pretty Ina. I do love that color scheme! The little flower bouquet is so delicate!

Mac Mable said...

What a wonderful background you've made for those beautiful flowers. Great colour combination and loving your layout and the pop of black to finish x

Sue VanDeVusse said...

Gorgeous! Your background is amazing adding so much depth and I love your circle with the pretty flower arrangement along the edge.

Your flowers, the circle "frame", the pretty background: all add up to one gorgeous card!

Bobby said...

Your background is so creative, Ina, and looks fabulous with the flowers mounted on the dark blue circle.

Such a pretty card, Ina! Love that gorgeous blue! I'm afraid, I always struggle with my photos! It's so hard to get one that really shows off your work properly!
