Best Wishes

Hi there!

Yesterday , while waiting for our eldest daughter to arrive for a !!! month's !!! visit, I had to keep busy to make the time go faster !

So I decided to create a card for the current Fusion card challenge where they have an amazing inspiration photo. My card is quite a literal take on the photo, also using the sketch provided, just flipped it upside down.

                                                                  

My card:


A closer look:



For my window, I used 2 chevrons, cut from a lighter and darker grey card stock. I used the same concept for a masculine birthday card HERE.

I had a specific image in mind, and because I don't have it in a stamp form, I did a quick online search for flower bouquets coloring pages. I opened the image I found in the Silhouette studio, traced it and did the fussy cutting with my cameo.

I water colored the bouquet with my Zigmarkers.

The sentiment is a digital stamp, using the font Always in my heart.

Your card is lovely, and your design is so creative. Using the light and darker gray cardstock gives your image a wonderful 3-D look. You are an amazing card creator! Ever think of designing cards for one of the large companies?
