10/10/2017 Update: Winner of the Sapphire Award at Color Dare Challenge #262.
I don't like to do anything in a hurry or under pressure. I like to plan, think and take my time, however, that doesn't always work out in the real world.
The front of the card base was texturized with swirls using a die. The basket and floral images were stamped, colored with Copic markers and fussy cut. The bow was die cut and colored. The card base was embossed and the various elements were adhered to the card. The basket, flowers and bow were backed with foam tape. The sentiment was stamped directly onto the card. The inside was lined with a panel of white cardstock and decorated with a die-cut bow.
The card is being submitted to:
