thanks {the stamp market}...

When I saw this stamp set called Friendly Bunch from The Stamp Market....I had to have it.  Now if you know me, you know I don't color a lot.  But for this image, I had to jump in!  These petals were so much fun and having Lori Craig (the Copic master herself) was a huge help!

I learned lots about shading and blending and I just colored away.  It took me longer than Id like....my typical CAS card takes minutes, but I think this was worth it!

To create the sentiment, I added Versamrk to a white die cut and then heat embossed it with Gold Embossing powder....twice.  I love how the layers of powder make the sentiment pop.  I added the vellum die behind the thanks die and added it to the card front.  To finish off the card, I added the card front to a lavender card base.
