If Friends Were Flowers




Good evening! This little lady gave me a few fits--I kept trying to make her a redhead, and it just wasn't working. But she likes having light brown hair, evidently! Then she didn't like the color of her dress . . . until I tried the lavender shades. Finally she was happy, I was happy--and the card was finished except the sentiment. I'm not sure if I'll use it as a birthday card or a 'thinking of you' card, so I'll save adding that for when I send it.

Other than the odd disagreement on color, though, I'm loving my Magnolia stamps and my Copic markers! I tend to be a bit OCD on coloring things, and these markers--even though there is a little bit of a learning curve on them--are making me VERY happy when I'm coloring!

Enjoy the card--and please leave a comment and tell me what you think! Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Georgia-Pacific (white), Bazzill (green) and DCWV (purple) cardstock; Robin's Nest Dew Drops (clear); SU! ticket corner punch; stamps--Magnolia, and Stamps by Judith; Scrapbook Adhesives foam square dimensionals; and Copic markers as shown below:

I just love the purple colors in this card. It turned out very nice. Atleast you both came to an agreement & didn't drop it all together.. :)

Deb, your card is awesome! I'm so glad that Tilda gave you some hints on her preferences for her dress as it matches perfectly with the daisy's in her basket. You might want to check out this link for which colors to use for red hair. Suzanne Dean has done an excellent job putting them together. Beautiful card...hugs...Barb
