My mom is visiting for a couple weeks, so if my posts become intermittent, that's why. We decided that since neither of us have the virus and we never go anywhere, it would be safe for her to come and visit. We missed our regular visit in May, and she's 85 years old and I didn't want to wait any longer! The timing is perfect, too, because we are almost at the peak of Fall colors now. 💛
I tried something a little different with this card - I colored the background with Light Soft Sea Foam so the flower would appear white. I did cheat a little on the flower's shading, though. The Gray Granite and Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends were too dark, even the light Blends, so I pulled out my Copics for the shadows in the petals (W00 and W1).
To get the leaf to hang off the edge of the Stitched So Sweetly die cut, I snipped partway up on either side of the leaf then slid the die up snug, having the leaf on the outside of the cutting surface. The gold heat-embossed grid is from Comfort & Hope and the Mossy Meadow greeting is from Life Is Beautiful.
