truly grateful...

Hello!!!  We have had some crazy weather here in my neck of the woods.  Snow started falling on Sunday afternoon, but by Wednesday it turned to seriously heavy rain fall!  Then last night (Thursday) along with the heavy rain we started to get really strong winds.  The wind was so strong today that it knocked over a tree that we have growing in a big pot on our deck!  Thank goodness my older son was able to help me get the tree upright!!  Truly grateful that he was around to help and that it appears we are headed for a bit tamer weather this weekend!!  Anyway... during all of that today I made a card!!  I used the current MFT sketch challenge layout and the colors from the current Color Throwdown challenge.  I stamped the flower and leaves from the MFT Fancy Flowers set using watermark ink on watercolor paper and then embossed with black embossing powder.  The flower was then colored with orange and aqua ZIG markers.  The leaves were colored with the aqua ZIG.  Once they were dry I die cut them with the matching dies.  A white panel of cardstock was die cut and then I embossed the MFT Stitched Mini Scallop rectangle on to the panel.  The flower and leaves were layered on.  I stamped the sentiment (from the MFT Geometric Greenery set) with watermark ink on vellum and embossed with the black embossing powder.  The sentiment was then die cut with a Stitched Fishtail Flag Stax die and adhered.  A few sequins in aqua and orange were added to finish off the card. 

Hope you have a wonderful day...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  white, Ranger watercolor paper; Stamps:  My Favorite Things; Dies: My Favorite Things and AJVD; Ink:  VersaMark watermark; Embossing powder:  Filigree black; Orange and Aqua sequins; ZIG clean color markers

Oh wow--modern & gorgeous, Rosemary! The watercoloring of that flower is amazing! Glad you didn't have any damage from the wind. We had a gorgeous day yesterday, but quite chilly if the breeze was coming at you.

Gorgeous CAS design! We've had unbelievable wind here in VA as well. Always makes me nervous having a house surrounded by lots of huge oak trees! :-(
