Happy Hump Day!

The card I have to show you today had a lot of cutting, so it took me longer than I expected.  I am happy with the result though.

My focal image, which was colored with Copics is from Melanie's "Buds and Vases" set.  Her stamp sets are always so versatile. My bg was CB embossed with Tim Holtz's Brick Fade.  I thought I'd try it with this pastel pink and yellow paper and think it turned out cute, and not grunge-like at all. I made the little holder for the sentiment, trying to get it to look like the one that florists include with their arrangements. The oval die was painted with crackle paint and then sponge with distress ink, to replicate woodgrain.  Thanks for stopping by today!

This is very pretty, Karen. I'm into flowers all of a sudden since Christmas is past. Funny, I thought it would be snowmen. LOL! Great job coloring!

This card is soooo cute! You did a lovely job on it! Love the colors together, and you did a fantastic job on the sentiment holder! It DOES look like the one the florist uses!
