Deborah's Card Exchange

This was my card I sent off to my friend Dawn for the card exchange. Deborah provides three challenges one is color, another sketch and last a theme.

The colors were various shades of green and purple. I immediately thought of my Flourishes violets stamp set. This is what I created with that in mind.


These were colored using my watercolor pencils and accented with stickles. The centers of the flowers are accented with these glittery pearls. I have had them for awhile but didn't have anywhere to use them. After I added the stickles they fit right in. :)

The background is a sizzix embossing folder. The die cuts are both nestabilities.

I laid the die cut over the image after I had stamped and colored and sponged around the frame to create the white border.

The white frame on the large die cut was traced around the outside of the die and hand cut.

I hope you have a lovely day. (Forecast here is for about 6 - 10 more inches of snow by end of tomorrow.) I guess that is why I keep creating spring flower cards. Trying to inspire mother nature to give up on the snow and start moving towards spring.

Have a lovely day!

  2. This is so beautiful Suzanne and a gorgeous colour combo. I love how you use the Nesties to create the shaped card.

    We woke up to about 5/6 inches of snow here in the Midlands of the Uk and it snowed like Billy-O for about 2 more hours but suddenly stopped and lots of it has thawed now thank goodness.
