Take Care

How was your weekend?  Hope you had a great time!  I didn't get round to do all that I wanted, but, isn't that always the case?
I have a card to share today for the Flourishes Home Sweet Home challenge.  In my house, there are no living plants!  I guess you could say with certainty, this girl has no green fingers because even the cactus died! ;)  Not long ago, my aunt gave me this beautiful silk flower and vase (I guess she felt the house needed a "plant") - I loved it!

I was inspired to use the Lenten Rose stamp set - I love that image of a bunch of beautiful roses in a vase with water.  I didn't keep to the same colours as the flower on my photo above - I tend to love brightly coloured flowers on my cards, but there was some pink in the patterned paper that matched.

I coloured the image with Copic Markers - Flowers (R30, R32, R35, R37, R39), Flower centre (Y15, YG21 & Atyou Spica Clear glitter), Leaves (YG01, YG03, YG17), Vase (BG0000, BG10, BG01), Table (E13, E15).  The Lenten Roses image was adhered to the patterned paper (Webster's Pages - Sunday Picnic) with pop dots, and I added some lace and pearls to finish off the card.  By the way, I did a little bit of recycling by using a piece of cardstock leftover from cutting out the scalloped rectangle die to frame the patterned paper.  What do you think?

Have a great week!
Kary

Beautiful card Kary - and yes using the 'cut out' to frame the card is fabulous - something i don't do often enough :-)
Blessings
