Happy New Year!  Welcome back to my blog where to day I am sharing a card made for two challenges.

For my card I used a beautiful new stamp from Simon Says Stamp.  It has some gorgeous images in it; I settled on using the large floral spray. 

The image was colored with Copic markers.  I decided that I needed to use markers in more muted colors, which I am not typically drawn to, and I have to say I love how it turned out!  When the coloring was complete, the spray was cut with the coordinating die.  

The sentiment was die cut from Pretty Peacock card stock 5 times and layered for some nice dimension.  To create the card a panel cut with a cover die was trimmed down and adhered to the white card base with foam tape.  Next the flowers were added, also using foam tape, then the sentiment glued into place.  I used a shimmer pen on the flowers and berries, then covered the berries with Glossy Accents.  No jewels or sequins this week, I really like how it looked as is!

Thanks so much for visiting, I really appreciate it!  I hope you're continuing to stay safe and healthy and enjoy the remainder of your week.
