Thoughts and Prayers All Around

The Queen for the Day, at SCS, last Friday was Mary aka jandjcc.  I want to CASE many of the cards from her amazing gallery!  Here is the card that I chose to CASE this time.  And here's my version....


I really loved the way she swirled the flower spray.  I went with a brighter palate, mainly because these were the colors in the Color Throwdown last week.  I'm too late, as usual, but I'm glad I tried these colors.

The branch and flowers were inked with SU Markers, Certainly Celery and Pumpkin Pie.  After I stamped once on the card, I stamped again without reinking on an envelope.  Then I went back with my Melon Mambo marker and colored the centers of the flowers and finished them off with a dot from the White Gel Pen in the very center.

I'll send this over to Paper Players for their Kind Thanks Challenge.

And the TLC challenge, at SCS, is to Decorate the Envie.

I'm going to have to stop.  Mr. Brown just delivered my new IDEA BOOK & CATALOG and I keep having to stop and look.  I think I'll stop this and just concentrate on that!  I wish I could show it to you today :>(, but I can tell you that most of my favorites from the mini catalogs made it into the big one!  Yeah!!  And there's five new In Colors too and well as the wonderful In Colors from last year.  Hopefully I can get my head out of the book long enough to make another card to share with you tomorrow!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Oh, and I was a top pick at jac-inks last week.  That gave me a big smile!

Enjoy!

Congrats on your win at Jac-Inks, Bonnie!! This card is so pretty. I love your design for it--I'll have to keep that one in mind. I like using the scallop trim corner punch like that, too. But I keep forgetting about it!! So thanks for the reminder. :)

Bonnie, I always look forward to seeing what you create! This is just lovely--the colors are so fresh! I just never have the patience to color in all those flowers individually, but what a beautiful effect it makes! Thanks for playing with the Paper Players Kind Thanks challenge this week!

This is one of the prettiest cards I have seen with this set! Love how you've swirled the branches around to frame the sentiment. And the punched corners are just the right touch! Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players!
