Happy Thursday all!  I hope you are all enjoying your week!!  Today is my dear hubby's birthday!! Woo hoo!  Only problem is we are all sick an feeling miserable...We may have to wait to celebrate... I wanted to share a card I made for my dear mom who spends every spare moment she has in her flower gardens.

or my card I used a digi from one Whimsy Stamps new designers: Natalie Michalski (Moon Cookie). Natalie just recently drew some fun, simplistic and pretty
flower vases that I just had to use for my mom . This is image is called "Wavy Vase" I also had to use some Quite Contrary dp that I have been hoarding for what seems like years. The sentiment was typed on my PC.  The layout uses the SC331 sketch designed by Roxi at Splitcoast. 

The bow is using red and white gingham and is tied with the bow easy.  The image is colored with copics,  The dry embossed background uses Stampin UP's Basket weave.

Card recipe:
stamp-"Wavy Vase"- Moon Cookie Gallery at Whimsy
Paper- Quite Contrary, black, white
Accessories: SU basket weave embossing folder, red gingham ribbon, bow easy, copics, rhinestones, Spellbinders Circle dies, spellbinders rectangular dies
