Crazy Card Club March

                                                 Crazy card club for March

This was fun!  We had no particular theme for this month... just go 'wild'.  Well, I wouldn't exactly call my card 'wild' but with spring on our doorstep I just had to do something floral.  And, about a month ago, one of my stamping icons decided to sell off her supplies and I bought a few things.  She sent me a thank you card along with my goodies.  Here is Beate's card... and my inspiration (I copied it pretty closely)... how could I not?  It's such a beautiful card.  I sure will miss her posts and tutorials.   :-)

Beate's card

My card

The main body of the card uses Resplendent Rectangles by Spellbinders.  Beate's card does not fit an A2 envelope so I chose to make mine smaller.  That said, the top had to be eliminated so I placed the die a little differently in the machine.  Came out like this - the card was already folded and opens from bottom to top.  Leaving the die in the paper, I sponged the borders with soft sky ink and a dauber.  I did this for the top layer too.

I used my copics to color the flower images from Stampin' Up's Happy Watercolor set.  

I also put some gold stickles in each flower center and added this picture since the other did not show up.

I hope you've enjoyed today's post.  This card was a bit labor intensive but really fun to create.

Have a great day!!!

Huggies, my friends
