Thanks Gift Card

Good Afternoon everyone! I have yet another card to share with you. I hope everyone is enjoying seeing all these cards! I know that everyone enjoyed getting these as gifts and are already putting in requests for more ;)

This was such a fun card to make! I got to play with one of the sets from the Spanish catalog, Flores Suaves. I love this tulip and the script! I did a gatefold card to be able to showcase the tulip. I colored this with my Koh-i-noor pencils which are woodless colored pencils and blended the pencils with odorless mineral spirtits and blending stumps. I used yellow, orange and green on my tulip to get that wonderful multi-colored look and added a shadow at the bottom to help ground the image. I wrapped some cream sheer ribbon around both panels to add some interest. I dipped into my retired colors for this card ~ the base is Wild Wasabi and it is layered with River Rock and Very Vanilla.
