Dandelion "Floaters"



A friend saw this set from Gina K "Many Wishes" and wanted me to make a card for her with lots of gold or "sparkle"! I dont usually like to do cards that are necessarily requested with specifics (seems to affect my "mojo") BUT for this card I was excited because I've been wanting to play with this set. Wanted to have a leaf background that would standout as different. So hand-drew the leaves, colored with chalk, outlined them with white and gold. Used sage shadow cardstock to match coloring of leaves. Stamped the little "blow" blooms (we used to pick them and blow on them to watch them float away) in craft white and embossed. Matted on gold cs, added double ribbons, little gold bling nailhead, and there is glitter all over the images that doesnt show well in photo. Quick and easy! Going to do some more later to put on Ebay....well back to work - working from home first part of the day to avoid all the traffic that the news is reporting...ugh :(
