 MMTPT560 - Say it with Flowers

USEIT2019 - flowers

I am still working my way through the huge pile of stuff on my craft table and a couple months back I made some thank you cards for my SIL with a bunch of flowers. I loved the layout and it was a terrific way to use a ton of the flowers which I still have on my table. So I grabbed a pile and some coordinating paper and started shaping some more for these cards.

I left the sentiments off so that I could use them for any occasion. Finished the flowers with Nuvo Drops and splattered a few drops on the white card bases also.

Week of 4/13/19 Cards

IC697 - Disney Music Emporium, truth be told I think the band uniforms for our indoor marchers may have been partially inspired by another Disney film. I am uploading these cards (that I have been working on for a few days) because they remind me of this DISK.

I ordered this custom stamp from Madnuson Custom Stamps. It is drawn by Angie (THANK YOU ANGIE) based on the uniforms our indoor marchers are wearing. They are performing their last competition tomorrow and I made 57 (yes you read that correct) cards so that each kid could have one.

Stamped off the images and colored each one with copics, cut the layers and sponged the sentiment layer.
