I made this card for a friend at work, who is always available for a pep talk when I need it. And here lately, I’ve needed more than a few! I started with the Color Combo Challenge from Tuesday and went from there. My sweet little helper (DD) sat in my lap the entire time I worked on this, so it is a miracle the cuts are straight and it holds together, lol!
After my tiring workday, I was totally in the mood for a clean, no frills card. So the only “extras” this card has are the paper pierced holes at the top, which are colored with a white gel pen, and Stickles inside the jumbo eyelet on the doodle flower. Oh, there are also little specks of Stickles on the centers of the small flowers on the sentiment panel.
I stamped the doodle flower twice in Basic Gray ink, cut them out, and embossed them with clear powder. I used Groovy Guava ink and a blander pen to color the wording on the sentiment. And for some final glitter, I outlined the scroll-doodle-thingy (nice decription, huh?) with a Sakura glitter pen.
