So Sunday I went to NJ to visit with my mommom and hit up a TON of yard sales (trying to furnish my first apartment and kitchen). I found an awesome antique card box with all the dividing tabs still in it (I should have included a picture..darn). I am so excited about this card box that I decided to focus on making cards to put into all the categories - fun right!?
The card I made this go around is for the "sympathy" tab... It's actually my first "get well soon" card :) I even made the card in the shape of a heart!!
Products Used: The stamp is from Karen's Doodles - check out her blog!! She has some AMAZING things...and this one was a freebie!, The tiny flowers come from a bag of flowers in my stash, the ribbon is Celebrate It's Holiday collection, The sentiment comes from Marcella by K, and I finished off the flowers with pearls by Recollections. All the paper are from scrap packs you can get at Michael's.
Here is a close up of the digi from Karen's Doodles. I painted the image with simple water color paints I had in my stash. The cute little mouse sharing the flower seemed so girly and cheery!!
I've also included a close up of the ribbon and flowers so you could see the pearls better. The pearls really added an elegant look to the simple flower :)
The green and pink papers got a little covered up but the pink is covered in sparkly swirls and the green paper is embossed with flowers (I didn't do the embossing myself - I'm very new to embossing and they wouldn't have looked NEARLY as clean cut hahaha).
