Today is my Sister's and her husband's 49th Anniversary.  One more year to a milestone anniversary!    The stamp is from Penny Black - Elegance in Motion.  I did not use the entire design on this card because it measures more than 5 1/2".  The "Wishing You" is from a Verves stamp set.  The set has a variety of additional stamps to use inside the card.  The design was colored with my Copic markers.

For this card I did use a larger portion of the design since I wasn't leaving room for a sentiment on the front.  First of all I pulled out one of my Impression Obsession large stamps that cover the entire front of a card.  I stamped it with Memento Rich Cocoa ink but stamped it off one time so it would be lighter.   I also stamped the flowers with the same ink.  Since I stamped the design with my MISTI, I was able to darken the outline of the design to make it show up more by reinking and stamping it more than one time.  (Love my MISTI!)

Using the same Copic markers I colored the flowers and then added Clear Wink of Stella to the centers of the flowers and to the bow.

I tried matching the blue from the flowers to some of my card stock and couldn't find one that matched so I made my own.  I took another layer of the vanilla card stock and colored the edges with the Copic blue marker that I used in the design.

Thank you for coming by today!

Two very pretty cards, Vicki! Great idea to color your own matching cardstock! You'd think, that with as much cardstock that we have, we'd always have exactly the right color!

STAMPIN' UP! - Varied Vases #6

The punched vases are from a 6 x 6 package of designer papers and for this card, I just left the flowers without coloring them. Thank...
