Thinking of You Card

Isn't this a perfect card for a coffee drinking friend?  I colored the image in our Copic class and loved how well the colors blended with my new Crate Paper Pack.  In fact all of the DT paper on this card is from the Bliss Collection.

Did you notice the background of the stamp....Woo hoo....I sprayed it with my new Copic Air Brush System.  How fun was that?  I hope I get the chance to do some more creating with it today.

I started with Neenah Paper cut at 6 inches, used the Glue Glider to adhere the Bliss Crate Polka Dot Paper and rounded the corners with my Fiscars Corner Rounder.

The Lime Green Crate Paper was also cut from the Bliss Crate Paper Pack as well as the Pink Border paper.  Spellbinders Label 8 and Label 4 were used to cut out the image and the borders.

JustRite's Just A Note Thinking of You Sentiment was just what I needed and I distressed it by leaving it in the Peony Nestie.  I sponged it with Rangers Distressed Ink and my Jumbo DauberGreen Rhinestones added some balance and interest after I lifted one side up with 1 Therm O Web Dimensional and the other side had two Dimensionals on it because of the height difference. 

I used Martha Stewarts Flora Vine punch to punch a 6 inch piece using the bright pink and the lime green from the Bliss Crate Paper Pack.  I added the green under the pink to pop out the accent color.
The canopy was popped up using the same dimensionals.  I spotted this wonderful ribbon at May Arts and it is perfect with this color wave in the Bliss Paper Pack.  I used the Bow Easy to tie the bow.
