Year of Flowers: Morning Glories

Popping in to show you what I created with the latest installment in the Year Of Flowers Series from Papertrey Ink. This is Year of Flowers: Morning Glories and I think it is just beautiful! Nichole did such a wonderful job illustrating this. This card went out as a birthday greeting to a friend of mine. I hope it brightened her day!

I colored this with the Copic Trios suggested by PTI for the colors coordinating with Plum Pudding, Lavender Moon and New Leaf. The background was created by stamping the focal image with Plum Pudding ink onto Plum Pudding cardstock. I like the tone-on-tone look that adds a cohesive feel to the card without detracting from the focal image.

We have a fun, busy weekend here! It's been unseasonably warm here this week. (I thought it was done! I hoped it was done! Just wait - come February I'll be lamenting about the cold again...I should really just move to somewhere with moderate temps year round!) Heading to a Nats game tomorrow with some friends then Sunday plans for football - should be a fun, sports-filled weekend! Hopefully I will squeeze in a little time for stamping, too. Whatever you're up to, I hope it is a ton of fun! Be well.
