Jolie Fleurs

When I saw this set by Lizzie Anne Designs, I knew I had to purchase it. I've seen so many beautiful projects with this set. I thought I'd try my hand at a classy pretty flower card.

The card base is Pretty in Pink with CHF's Paisley backgrounder stamped for a tone on tone effect. The main image is the largest flower from "Jolie Fleur". I stamped it three times, cut out the multiple layers and used dimensional tape. The layers are So Saffron and Purely Pomegranate. I used my (small) collection of Copic markers to color the images (RV11-Pink, Y21-Buttercup Yellow, RV19-Red Violet, G21-Lime Green). Incidentally, I think RV19-Red Violet is a very close match for Purely Pomegranate.

The sentiment "you brighten my day" was stamped on So Saffron cardstock. It's from the Thoughtful Phrases inaugural set by Verve Visual - and it fits perfectly in the Word Window punch.

I really love how the card finished! It wasn't at all how I planned... but I'm rather limited in Copic colors right now. The colors I had dictated how I finished the card... wasn't that convenient?

Thanks for stopping by,
