So Kind

This was a pretty quick and simple card I made last night.

The floral image is from Hero Arts Solid Flowers Flourish stamp set. I colored on the rubber using my Tombow markers, spritzed with water using a JudiKins Fine Mist Spritzer to remoisten the ink, then stamped on white cardstock.

I used my oval Nestabilities to cut and emboss the stamped image, as well as the pink oval and the scalloped green layer. I do love my Nestabilities!
The sentiment is from the Hero Arts So Many Messages stamp set. Be sure to look at that's a great one! I colored on the rubber with a Tombow marker then stamped on white cardstock. I used both my small and medium SU! ovals to cut and layer the image.

After I put the card together I decided I wasn't crazy about the ribbon with this Paper Adventures designer paper, but it was too late. Oh does match. I would just have preferred something a bit wider, and maybe a little more vibrant. (I'm trying to learn not to sweat the small stuff! Obviously I need more practice in that area!) LOL!

My friend Mary stopped by tonight to visit and do a little shopping. She even brought dinner for me. Wasn't that super sweet? Love ya Mary! So I'm going to enjoy my dinner while I watch the State of the Union.

Thanks so much for stopping by.....more tomorrow.

Until then...

Silly me!! I was wrong. I was going to say how perfect that ribbon was with the dp!! But I stand corrected by your explanation. *grin* I do love the dp and that gorgeous flower image with the leafy swirls. You didn't mention that that was bad, so I assume I'm safe to say that. And, we both used our Oval Nestabilities tonight!! Woot!!! Gorgeous card Michelle!!

So pretty! Love everything about this card from the image, the dp, the ribbon (!!) and the use of nestabilities. As always, Michelle, it is such a joy to view your work!
