You're Bloomin' Fabulous!


It's Day 2 of Our Craft Lounge's sneak peeks, and today I am sharing a card made with Pretty Petals, along with a sentiment from another new set, Say it with Flowers, which will be available along with the rest of the sets in this release tomorrow at i {heart} papers.  I used the out-of-the-box technique and Basic Grey's Green at Heart designer paper, whose bright colors are really speaking to me lately.  I feather-stroked with my Copics in both hot pink and orange to color the flower petals.  I used warm grays to add a bit of shadow, but also used cool grays to color the dots of that cute little lady bug!

That velvet corduroy ribbon has such wonderful rich color and texture...it is a little thick to tie into a traditional bow, so I added a button tied with jute instead.  The sentiment, cut with a nesties tag, is held in place with two glazed brads, one of which runs right through the hole made by the MS scallop punch.

If you were here yesterday, you know the guidelines regarding comments and blog candy...and if you missed them, scroll down to find them along with yesterday's peek of the set, Tweet Thang.  Be sure to come back tomorrow for another preview.

Here is the list of today's participating designers:
