Happiness Is……

 A coworker is getting married in a few weeks so I thought I better get her card finished soon. It worked out really well that today’s challenge at 365 cards was to color…but alas we could not use markers! My first thought, was oh no but once I pulled out my prisma pencils and started working it wasn’t that bad.


I dug through my floral stamp sets and decided to use this one by Flourishes called Sweet Pea. I inked the image with Versafine Vintage Sepia and stamped just a portion of the large stamp. That image square is just 3.5 by 3.5 inches. I used only two pencils to color with, Olive Green and Pink. I also used a lot of Gamsol and my blending stumps! Once the image was colored, the rest was easy. The cardstock is SU Blush Blossom, ribbon is Champagne satin that I have been hording since my Flourishes weekend last February (the bow easy was used for the bow), a few mini pearls and the sentiment (which is from the sweet pea stamp set).I think it will do just fine for a wedding card, don’t you?
