Filigreed Floral

Hi All ... Happy Monday ... and I do mean that ! Here's my card for today . Can you see that embossed blue paper ? It's from K&C's Addison pack . It has a wonderful texture . I couldn't wait to use it ... courtesy of a birthday gift from a friend ! The flower image( Heidi Grace ) was stamped five times with Memento Tuxedo Black , colored with Copics ( BV00, B52, BG15, RV04, YR12 ) and cut out. Black metal dots were added to the centers. The black swirls were cut out with a Sizzix die. The sentiment frame was cut out and embossed with an oval Nestie and a ribbon was added. The sentiment ( JoAnn's ) was stamped in Tuxedo Black also and colored with a Copic. The "trellis" is punched with a Martha Stewart punch. What do you think ? Well , today is the day ! The beginning of a kitchen remodel due to a burst water pipe from our very cold winter. The stamping room is a pretty good place to spend the day away from the dust , don't you think ! May be back later with a challenge card . { Hugs... Hugs !}

I forgot to add what I like to do in the summer. I love to take the dog for walks and also do some camping when time allows. Sitting by the campfire in the evening is so enjoyable.
