You make my world that much brighter

Hello! I hope you all are doing well today! I had so much fun making this card. I combined Judy's Blooms with an Ali Edwards set. I stamped in versamark to get the background, and then I stamped the largest flower from Judy's Blooms on different patterned papers, cut them out and layered them. I like rolling the edges of the flowers in for some dimension. I just use the end of a watercolor brush (the plastic kid ones) to roll the edges around.This is such a fun way to make your own custom flowers!

I really like tying ribbon off on the side like that. It looks cute and there is no big bow to mess up! Hehe! :)

Well, I am off to get some rest! I ran a mile and a half yesterday after not running for 8 years (back and hip injury), and I am hurting! Oh my goodness! My muscles forgot what that was like, and I am clearly not 22 anymore. Haha! Wish me luck as I am trying again today!

  1. So cute kelly! It is so bright and cheery and makes me smile!

  2. Gorgeous card Kelly...love all the layers on the flower and the flourish behind it!

  3. Love how you layered the flowers stamped on diff. paper. I love the dimension.

    Take it easy with the running. I am not a runner at all, but I use my treadmill. I jogged 3 miles on Sunday (a personal best)and ached for two days. I was able to run 2 miles yesterday. I love the accomplishment it gives me, but my 41 yr old body (lower back) reminds me to take it easy.

    I love to think about cards as I run it out with the Black Eyed Peas! teee hee (;

  4. I love this card!!! I'm always a sucker for lined or graph paper and that paired with the yellow -the flower is perfect!! Thanks for sharing!!

  5. Gorgeous card, Kelly!
    This is one of my favorites! :)
    Hope your muscles feel better soon. Good for you for getting back into running. I wish I could myself to feel motivated again. It's just too hot to run outside here in FL. (That's my excuse). LoL

  6. They are perfect stamps together!


  7. Love the card...so cheerful! Enjoy the running, but remember to take it easy and don't forget to stretch!
    bless you!

  12. So cute. I tried casing this today for the Lawnscaping Challenge. AAAHH! It was hard cutting those flowers so I wasn't even able to do 3 layers like you did here! Man, this was tough. Yours is gorgeous! Can I claim this one as the one I did instead? LOL!
