Miss You

I couldn't help myself  I had to make another one!  I just HAD too, lol!!  This card is based on the Wild Orchid Challenge Sketch by Bev who just happens to be my cardmaking idol!  I just love everything she creates.

I made the flower myself ... I took, borrowed, lifted, nope I mean learned to make the flower from a talented scrapbook artist you can find her tutorial here, Vicky - Fuzzy lollipop flower.   I had some cheap mulberry paper that I bought at the dollar store when I started scrapbooking and well I couldn't cut it with my paper trimmer... I got mad... put it away and there it stayed... well I am happy and sad to report that I figured out that I loved playing with that paper.  it is so much FUN!!  It is all fussy and soft when you tear it and brush it out a bit!  What esle did I do... I colored the image and the blue flower centers (they were lavender) with my copics.  I also created the star sentiment.  I started with an acrilyc star.  I colored it yellow with my copics... I added some gold stickles to that and glued the whole thing to a white peice of cardstock  I used rub-on letters on the top of it and I attached it with pop dots.

Well thanks for looking.
