On to my creation!

Ok, I have a confession to make. You know those weeks where you hardly have time to breathe, let alone make a card? Well, my dear friends, that was my week this week! So, when I hit the craft room with a cup of Java and a few minutes to spare, I knew whatever I did had to be quick! 

I have always admired those ladies who can create and make their creations pop because of their use of white. So... that's what I had in mind with this card! I started with a piece of Classic White Card Stock - half was my card and then a quarter was run through my Grand Callibur with a fun Stampin' Up Embossing Folder. I took a scalloped punch and took that from the quarter sheet left. Stamp Wild Roses in Tuxedo Black ink, grab the Copic Markers -- Lenten Rose and Pistachio Collections grouped by Flourishes and go to town coloring. I ended up "scribble coloring" -- not really going for a realistic look -- just a splash of color. Once I was done, I added some shading with BG0000 and BG000. Add some dots of white with a white gel pen and... ta da! The rest is so easy peasy! Stamp the sentiment in the lower right corner, add a splash of color and a dash of glitter glue. Add a strip of decorative paper, and then adhere the main image with some foam tape! 

Here's a close up of my flowers....

And that, my friends is it! An easy peasy lemon squeezy creation! I didn't time this card because half of it was spent picking that darn teeny strip of decorative paper! Oi Vey! But, if I had to do this again, I would say 20 minutes tops!

Thanks for stopping by this Friday! Make sure you hop on over to see what our very talented Design Team has in store for you today with these sets:
Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend! I'll see you back here soon!

Quick and easy cards are my favorite and I totally know what you mean about taking huge amounts of time to pick out just the right patterned paper!
