Wistful Thoughts

Well this is the next challenge done for 365 day cards. This was where you had to use at least 3 corners so I went whole hog and did the 4. In fact this card is for my niece, Jade, who is such a wonderful girl, um, young lady. She turned 14 on Monday. Even though she is big time into Twilight ( I have no vampire stamps:)) she also loves the arts and is looking forward to going with me again to an art museum. I made 2 views so you can see that some of the card is raised up. I stamped the image and coloured her in with tombow colours with the watercolour technique and I also used a little chalk also on her dress and the background. I then stamped the the flowers in the card and coloured them and then cut them out raised it. I have a corner stamp with the flowers so I also coloured and cut them out. I had decal butterflies, coloured and cut them and raised them up and then I placed some crystals in the flowers and used stickles on the flowers and leaves since it is very hard for me to avoid glitter. It was so much fun to do and I love my niece so very much so it was a pleasure doing this for her. Everyone have a beautiful day because even if it is raining it makes the flowers bloom and the sun lets the colours shine:)
