From the heart - Floral card

Today is the last day to join me on my facebook page to get entered into a drawing for 6 assorted handmade cards. Click on over to angelariddellstamps on facebook and "like" my page.

Today is the last day to sign up for the birthday card class. I have 1 space available. If you would like it, call or email me asap.

Hello! It's sunny today, it's so exciting. I spent a few minutes outside yesterday afternoon in my flower gardens. Picking up the leaves and dead flowers from last season and found many flowers starting to poke through the soil! Warm weather is really almost here! This weekend is supposed to be beautiful and I can't wait and I saw that early next week it may hit 70! And on my journey's today I actually saw GREEN grass. Can you tell I"m excited for spring to actually be here?
So in honor of spring and warm weather and the sun being out, I have a floral card for you to look at.
I used razzleberry and garden green with whisper white and a touch of soft suede for a couple of the flowers. I used my blender pens and ink pads to color in the flowers. This is a 3x6 card when it's folded. I used a 12x12 piece of cardstock for this card and cut it in 1/4's.
 I used lots of rhinestones on this card to give it an extra special touch. Here is a close up of the coloring. I love the way the ferns came out. I used wild wasabi first as my lighter color and then came back and added touched of garden green to make it look more realistic.

 This card is for a newer friend whose been a huge encouragement to me in the last couple of months and I wanted to let her know how much it's meant to me. All the flowers are "popped" up on dimensionals to give the card more interest.
Just a simple strip of razzleberry taffeta ribbon and a 1 1/2 of garden green cardstock and there you have it! I really enjoyed making this card. Coloring is one of my favorite things to do. I find it soothing.
I hope you like it.
Have a great day and happy stampin!
