Fresh Cut Flowers

I love flowers like this, an this is on of my favorite Lockhart stamps that we used in the class I recently attended. I like the country look of the old Mason jar, like someone picked these out in the field before coming in and presenting them. The image was colored with Prismacolor pencils and I used a little Sakura glitter pen on the jar. I used card stock from the basket of scraps and the purple piece was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. The buckle thingy is from a set of chipboard that I got at Jo-Ann's, the line is called Life's Blessings but I do not remember who made it. The colors were a little off so I used some Pebbles Metallic cream chalks to make it match my card stock colors. The ribbon came from Target's wedding section, great ribbon and lots of it for not a lot of money.

I am still working with my self challenge to not purchase any supplies for the month of July. Last night was the release of the new Hanna Stamps and I was so happy that I won two sets of my choice at the release party. I entered my Little Dresses card in the new set challenge and my card was picked. So I get new stamps and still get to stay within my $0 budget this month. I appreciate your visit tonight!

I think this card is quite beautiful! I love the color combo and the layering which draws you into the center image. The embossing behind the image also really gives depth to it. Your coloring is beautiful and the front ribbon and hardward wraps it all up like a bow! Well done!
