Flowers and Friendship

This is my post on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog today.

Hi, are you all full of turkey and ready to relax?
Well, Diane here today and I have just the perfect thing for you to
relax and enjoy!
One of the newly released  November stamps sets is
A gorgeous stamp set with just a hint of color to complete.

I decided to make a 'twisted easel' card.
Cut a piece of card stock to 5" x 10" and score in half.

Next score from top right corner to bottom left corner.
Now you have your easel to decorate as you want!
I cut a second from panel for mine and embossed with a
basket weave embossing folder, 
then applied Nuvo Embossing Mousse Spring Green to the bottom portion.

I stamped my image on a Spellbinders die
with Nuvo Hybrid Ink Acorn Brown, then colored very lightly with Copics.
I used a Stardust Gelly Roll Pen to add a bit of sparkle in the flower center.

For the inside I applied Sticker Paper to card stock,
then using a Sue Wilson New Zealand Wellington die,
I die cut it out, removed the paper to expose the sticker paper
and sprinkled with Mountain Mint pretty!
Using Versamark ink, I stamped the sentiment
and embossed with Black Fine Detail embossing powder.

Here is the card laying flat to mail.

Thank you for visiting with me today.

What a beautiful image and a cool twisted card! Love the delicate bit of color you added. I'm not good with pastels and Copics. It almost looks like chalks!
