ABC Challenge: N is for...

Hi ya friends,
Sheesh, I feel like I've been gone forever, but I'm here with my first card for the DT at The ABC Challenge Blog. The letter "N" is brought to you by Whimsy Stamps.

Here's my card:
I used a digi from Meljen's Stamps called Swirly Daisy Pot and for the sentiment I thought Stitched Hello would be a great compliment (& it's a freebie offered on the Meljen's design blog :).
There's lots of paper piecing on this card- the flowers, the pot, the "Hello." The flowers are popped on dimensionals & got a bit of Copic & Glossy Accents. The leaves were first colored with Copics, then painted over them with some Blingz paint, & then a dab of Glossy Accents. They look pretty IRL- a litlle like marbles. The mossy grassy part in the pot is flower soft.

You've got til 6pm next Monday to Linky your card to the ABC Challenge blog & possibly get your hands on some goodies from Whimsy Stamps!

Thanks so much for peeking today & have a great crafternoon!
Gotta Go!

  3. The flowersoft is a nice finishing touch. You really got some dimension out of the pot and flowers!

  4. Karli, this card is stunning! Love the flower soft for moss. Your popped and sparkly flowers with the pearls are so pretty. And, the gold scalloped frame--perfect.

  6. ABC challenge DT!!!! How fabby for you my friend. I love this card, I can totally see the shimmer on those glossy leaves.
