If I had a flower

Here is a card I made for a friend to say "thank you." She is one of the best hostesses I have ever met and I love to join whatever event she is hosting. (Shhhh Michelle, don't tell her about this card!)

Now on to the card! I used a sentiment from PMS called If I Had A Flower. The sentiment reads: "If I had a flower for every time you made me smile, I would walk in a garden." Isn't that just beautiful? I used a Technique Junkie (TJ) technique called Wisped Frames (Feb 2010) and Desert Sand ink, but the color wasn't right for the copper background so I added Potter's Clay. Ahhh, much better!

Now speaking of the copper background, this is another TJ technique called Double Embossed Metal (Feb 2010). This is actually a think craft sheet of copper metal. This second picture shows the metal sheet and it's technique a little better. I used my Copic markers to color on the metal sheet. (LOVE those Copic markers!)

I used oval and scalloped oval Nestabilities for the sentiment layer. The ribbon is two different widths of organdy blue ribbon.
