Wherever You Are...

Hi there! One of my resolutions this year was to get back to playing along with my favorite challenges and I'm doing just that!

Here's a beauty I made for the Flourishes Bring Back Beautiful Challenge. This month's theme is The Beauty of Bling! I started with this image that I started coloring quite some time's not like me to not finish something, but something must have happened to make me stop. Whatever the reason, I had some time today to finish it up and create a card for a dear friend of mine!

I used several Flourishes sets for this one... the image is from Sweet Violets, the sentiment is from Windows to the World and the little decorative flourish next to the sentiment is from the Seeds of Friendship set!

The image is colored with Copics and then cut out using the 'outside the box' method...or oval in this case! I embossed and inked my background paper, added a layer of vellum for my sentiment and topped it with a silky green ribbon and bow. The black bling by Want 2 Scrap was the perfect size and shape for this card!

Oh how I have missed playing along with the talented ladies at Flourishes, but I'm back now! Have a great weekend!
