Nature Inspired Card

I don't usually have time to make too many cards during the week but I felt inspired last night by the MFPSpeedyTV color challenge (blue) and the Queen For The Day at SCS - naturecoastcrafter where I selected THIS card to case. I love her very fun gallery. I am on the DT for MFPSpeedyTV's Inspiration Challenge but I am checking out some of the other challenges to see how fun they are - this color challenge is VERY fun!

I used a SB die, SU! ink for my circle, some blue Zva crystals, and two Marks Finest Papers stamp sets: Nature's Brushstrokes and Works of Art. I am falling in love with the Nature's Brushstrokes set - I received this set several months ago and never used it but now I am starting to find all kinds of uses for it. Since Jean loves nature and uses lots of nature in her cards, I thought it would be fun to use the word "nature" on the card (and there are two different sentiments with that word in the Nature's Brushstrokes set).


Happy Friday! Hugz!

  1. Two beautiful cards....yours and naturecoastcrafter's. I so want to case one of her gorgeous cards but it probably won't get it done today. Ugh! Great use of that Spellbinder die to get that pretty color in there. Have a good weekend, my ALABAMA friend.
