Pretty Pansies

Good morning, friends!  

Did you think I fell off the planet?
After the week of challenges at SplitCoast, I think my creative brain shut down. : )  That's ok, because I have LOADS to share with you over the next number of weeks!

Today's card was made with the Flourishes Botanical Bookplates set.  I love pansies and these were so much fun to color with my copics.  The sentiment is from another Flourishes set - Autumn Blossoms.  I really like the little flourish on the "Thanks".  It looks so elegant!   All throughout the DTGD challenges I was trying to keep my cards somewhat clean and simple.  With 42 cards to do in 7 days, that was sort of important to me!  But I also wanted to make them pretty enough to send and not be embarrassed, so I tried to add in extra touches like stitching, buttons, gems and ribbon.   It was SO much fun to find my own style again and not try to copy someone else!!

Thanks for stopping by!
