Primrose

We're under a tornado watch with a promise of worse weather this afternoon, so I am going to hurry up with this post in case I need to leave my house for a shelter, which is very likely.

I made the card for these challenges: QFTD56 on SplitcoastStampers. The Queen is CarrollAnn aka MrsBoz. I chose this card of hers to case. I made some changes, of course, but used her layout and a punch
around the page.

I colored my image with Copics, cut out leaves, curled them a bit, and popped them. I sponged around the flower while still in the Spellbinders Labels14 die cut. Added ribbon and a pearl. The punch around the page is a Martha Stewart called Flower Patch.

Hopefully the storm passed you over. We are getting it during the night tonight. Funny how it travels across the U.S. I am thinking they said 2 inches of rain. My poor garden. This is so pretty Brenda. I love the colors. I love that punch around the edges. Gives it a great look.. Super card.

Benzi this is really beautiful! I love the way you cut out the primrose and the wonderful way the yellow and red makes the flower pops!! Hope your weather gets better soon. Be safe :)

Oooh Brenda, this is soooo pretty! LOVE that fab primrose and your fancy border just frames it beautifully.
Your weather sounds really terrifying ... strong wind always scares me, so I think I'd be the first one banging on the door of the shelter! Hope you're OK!

Pretty, glow-y sponging around that primrose. Love how you popped it up for lots of dimension. :) Hugs to you.
