SU's Oh So Lovely Stamp

Oh Wow, did it ever rain here last night...I mean stormy weather! I was worried about tornados, but we didn't have any. Thank you Lord! The best part was waking up around 4:30 a.m. and listening to the end of the storm, which was just the calm rain that you love to wake up to.

This card was made for my friend Sharon...in fact I had to make 2 of these cards, because when she took the first one home, her mom wanted it for a friend of hers. So I had to make another for Sharon. What a compliment!

The flower stamp is from SU's Oh So Lovely. I colored it with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol Mineral Spirits, then used my Copic Glitter Pens to top it off. You can see the glitter better if you click on the picture. I used SU's Rose Red Designer Series Paper and SU's Petals and Paisley's Designer Series Paper. Spellbinders Square Nestabilities, Ribbon from SU, leaves from a bunch of flowers I got at Hobby Lobby, Swarovski Christal, and a button from a miscellaneous package I have had for quite some time.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful week!!

I am not surprised at all that you are asked for a second one. Your card is beautiful Velta! It is so soft an elegant, and the colors just make me smile!

I like the peppermint stripe paper with the pink scalloped Happy Birthday on top, kind of reminds me of pink peppermint cotton candy. Is there such a thing? I think there should be. Sharon's mom has good taste. I believe her friend will like her card too.
