Card started long ago


I just found the parts to this card. I started it months ago and put it aside because it was too" girly" for me. I used a flower from Lizzie Ann Designs. I colored it with Sakura Glaze pens. They're very bright pens, as you can tell. The colors on this are pink and yellow. I think the pink looks kind of purply in the picture, but it's a bright pink (like SU!'s Pixie Pink only not SU!). I think it's pretty self-explanatory. Stamped the flower, cut it out, colored it. Punched out the scallop, stuck the flower on, added a little jewel to the center of the flower. Ran pink CS through the Big Shot and tore it. Ran yellow CS through the Big shot and punched out the corners to stick the pink piece in. That's about it.

I'm feeling really crappy right now. The flu everyone else got, with all the upper respiratory ick, seems to have passed me by, but my throat hurts like crazy and I'm thinking it might be strep since my skin and head hurts. Oh, and a note to any pharm co rep who might be trolling for the word "flu", don't email me and tell me in one sentence how sorry you are that we've been ill then market flu meds to me in the next sentence. I know the pharmaceutical companies are anything but sorry to see people get sick. Without sick people, you don't have a business, so please, save your insincerity for someone who might buy it. I get enough garbage in my email.

Michelle ~ You are too funny...about the pharmacutical industry...I hate them...they make so much money off of sick people, especially the elderly. Your card is perfect and I love the way you layered the CB swirls. Hope you get to feeling better REAL soon :)
