Living Life

Hi all & Happy Wednesday! I have another card for you today using another new set from the upcoming SU Summer mini catalog. This set is called Fabulous Florets. When I spied this set, I have to admit it was the papers that coordinate with it that I swooned over. So if all us crafters think alike, and I know we do, HOW could I possibly JUST get the papers and not the set??? I mean for Pete's sake c'mon! *wink* So for your viewing pleasure, you get to see both in action today -

The card LO is from last weeks Sketch challenge on Splitcoast. Here is the Sketch-

I flipped the sketch, and changed the sizes of the panels to fit my needs. Oh.. there is another new goodie used too, the Flower Garden EF. ( I know, I know... you should see the twist marks on my arms from all the "must have it" pressure! he-he) I stamped the Poppies in versamark on watercolor paper, embossed with black EP, then water colored them with Tangerine Tango. To get the deeper tone on the petals, I used my Cajun Craze marker, and then went over the just colored area with my aqua painter. The Sentiment is from a SU hostess set called Occasional Quotes. 
I am going to send this as a Mother's day card, so this card also fits the SUO challenge card for this week. (Whoop! Whoop!)  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! Details below -

It would be impossible to consider getting the paper without all the matching items! But then, of course, I'm an enabler. ;-) This is really wonderful and the quote is fantastic for a mother. So glad you joined us for the SUO Challenge this week!

I am one of those people who only ordered the paper thinking I don't need another flower set. But you know what, after seeing how lovely those poppies look, I think I'm going to have to add it to my order now! :) Great card!
