as an unlimited broadcasting station,
through which God speaks to us every hour,
if we will only tune in.

Birthday Bouquet-Easel Card


Photo Inspiration



This has to be my favorite card I have made!  I had so much fun putting it together and the easel card wound up being easier than I thought.  A special card for a very special birthday this year for my sis-in-law (brother's wife). The photo inspiration is the bouquet that I carried in their wedding almost 16 years ago.  It has made a beautiful flower arrangement in my guest room since then.  Trying a new technique is sometimes out of my comfort zone, but when my other sis-in-law, Twinklestamper, posted a tutorial on her blog for easel cards, I decided to try one.  I hope this becomes more than just a card and that my sis-in-law may enjoy keeping it up in her office.  ColorThrowdown #81 challenge this week had the perfect colors that matched the silk flowers and beaded leaves that I had found at a local fabric store in the wedding supplies aisle.  

Stamps:  Birthday sentiment.
Paper:  Olive and brown cardstock; DP- Ivory Floral by The Gift Line and Paper Adventures;  Pink DP -Anna Griffin, Inc.
Ink:  Coffee Bean
Extras:  Silk flowers, beaded leaves, doilie, pink ribbon, pink flower button, heart corner punch, scallop border punch, pink and olive gem stickies.

Good evening!
