The Best is Yet to Be

25Jun09

This is the next “commissioned” card that I have to show you.  This one is for an engagement and the recipient of this card likes magnolias so I chose to use my Embrace Life stamp set.  I love magnolias too so this card was a bit easier for me than the last one.

The magnolias I love are pink at the heart of the petals and fade to white on the tips of the petals.  Actually, given my lack of knowledge about flowers I don’t even know if there are other colours.  I couldn’t find the right pink and I stumbled across this card on SplitCoast Stampers so I have used Riding Hood Red ink to colour in the flowers with a blender pen and Chocolate Chip as the outline.  The card base is Pink Pirouette and the designer paper background is from the Bella Rose pack.  I have used Chocolate Chip cardstock also and Ribbon to finish it all off.

The inside is finished with a panel of Whisper White and more flowers stamped in Chocolate Chip and coloured with Riding Hood Red ink with blender pens.  I love the inside of this card!
