Graphics, Flowers, and Gold

Good morning all!  I'm looking forward to a great Thursday:)  We'e going to get up to 60 today, the flowers are blooming, and I'm relieved that Winter is finally retreating!  Feels good!  Here's a little card to say "Hello" to Spring!


I pulled out some of my favorite Avery Elle sets for this one (Petals and Stems, Rounded Diamonds, and Laurels)!  In my mind, you can never go wrong with a bold graphic, bright flower, and a touch of gold.  I stamped and die cut my flower (added a bit of shading with my Copics).  Then I stamped the bold graphic background, slightly offset.  Then the sentiment.  And lastly a good sprinkling of hexagon glitter (from Michael's, if you're wondering).  For the glitter, I used a glue pen and just randomly dotted around and sprinkled the glitter over.  Whatever stuck, stuck!  


Until next time!  Have a wonderful rest of the week:)  

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj
