Best Wishes

Hi, today's Waltzing Mouse Blog Party theme is New Beginnings.  I wanted to create a card which is suitable for many new beginnings.  A card which I could send for any celebration, as well as to use a colour combo I've never tried before... {grin}


The pansies are from Afternoon Tea Sentiments.  I googled for pansies and found they do come in this red-orange colour which I really like.  I coloured the pansies with Copic Markers R01, R02, R05 and RV69.  The leaves are coloured using YG61, YG63 and YG65.  Just behind the pansies is a beautiful frame from Florentine Frippery (stamped with Memento Tangelo) and the sentiment (stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa on vellum) is from Big Day Additions.

Here are some close-up pics:
Love the shimmer on the coloured image from using the Cryogen cardstock 
Stamped and cut the single pansy to be attached to the sentiment
Thank you so much for coming by.  Please come along for the Blog Party, for I'm sure you will be inspired by the awesome creations from the Waltzing Mouse fans.

Enjoy!
Kary

Great card Kary. A very unusual colour combo indeed! Hahaha. The frame stamp is gorgeous! So you're liking the Cryogen cardstock for Copics? Hahaha. I think I will stick with it for a little while. LOL...

Claire Brennan said...

OMGosh Kary, this is stunning, mind if I pin??? thank you so much for playing along with us!!

Gorgeous pansies! I especially like the single pansy that accents the sentiment flag. I never would have thought Memento would dry on velkum, but great idea. One can never have too many "Best Wishes" cards on hand, Kary.
