Another Girlfriend's Getaway Project

A quick easel card, this one started with a new product from Hot Off the Press - "Awesome Blossoms Colorist Book". This was another design from "Girlfriends Getaway", but I made a couple of minor changes from what they had suggested: 
  • I changed the sentiments - different ones and colored purple with an alcohol marker, 
  • the card stands a bit more upright than theirs, and 
  • I forgot to add the Dazzles border along the edges of the black papers.  :)  (Okay, I actually just decided to save them for another project! :) )
The pictures are colored using pink & purple Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and green chalk.  You can't see it very well in the pictures, but the largest flower and the small purple flower near the "Thanks" are glittery because they were covered with a clear glitter sticky sheet.  I forget who makes it - and I sure wish I could have purchased more of it, but they ran out.  It's really cool stuff.

This is what the card looks like when closed.
