Happy Birthday

Happy Tuesday Peeps, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I am looking forward to a new year.
Change is the key word for us this year. Stay tuned for more on that.

I am sharing a card I made using the sketch at Mojo Monday.

This was a great sketch to work with.

I started by pulling out my Southern Serenade stamp set.
I stamped the pretty flower image with black stazon on thick whisper whiter card stock.
I colored using Calypso Coral and Old Olive ink pads with my water brush.

I fussy cut out that flower image, no small feat I might add...LOL!!!

I mounted it to a piece that I stamped with a lacey image from the same set. I  stamped using black memento ink but first off stamped once to get the lighter color.

The flower is then added to that panel with several dimensionals.

I matted this piece with some basic black cardstock.

 The base of the card is thick whisper white cardstock.
The coral DSP is from a retired pack.
The black DSP is from the neutrals DSP

I added  the main image panel to the card with more dimensionals.

The sentiment on here comes from the You're Inspiring set.
I added a few basic pearls on the flowers and around the image to finish it up. 

Thanks for coming by today.

Great card! Can't believe you'd fussy cut that flower/leaf pattern. I don't think I would have but it makes a pretty card.
