Purple Blossom Card

Here in Canucky Land, today is a civic holiday, I think that means the people who are civil get a day off. Us other mean folk have to work. But for me in the summer everyday is a holiday and a workday take my pick. heehee.

Pulling another card out of my box,



Deets:
-Background: CB Embossed and Distress ink using blending tool ( one of the purples and a bit of antique linen ) and a bit of chalk on the leafy parts.
-Oval Nestabilities and Shapeabilities - Floral Accent that I distressed with antique linen and a purple and added matching distress stickles.
-Digital set used: A Lovely Blossom & Butterfly
-Flowers coloured with pencils and OMS and glitter glue dotted in the center. - on the leaves, you can really see the sheen the pencil gives your paper... if you lightly rub your pencilled areas with a tissue, it buffs and evens the sheen. I personally like the shine.

Off to do something with my children, they have been with the grandfolk last week. I think I missed them more than they missed me LOL!

Have a great day!
