You've Got This, Southern Serenade, Birthday Card

The "You've Got This" set is going to be retiring at the end of May.  I liked playing with this set. I have made a lot of cards using it so I won't be too disappointed when it retires.  I don't care for fussy cutting and if I have to fussy cut, I do like it to be simple.  The stem of this flower is not fun but I stuck with it and toughed it out!! LOL  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. 

I took a 2" x 5" piece of the olive and silver stripped foil "Sweet Soiree" Decorative Series Specialty Paper (DSSP).  The Specialty word is added because these papers have silver foil on them.  I was going to layer this DSSP but I decided to just leave it as it was.  I wanted to make this card very simple and yet elegant looking.

Like I said, I had fussy cut the flower and then colored it with Calypso Coral Blends markers. I colored the leaves and stem using the Old Olive Blends markers.  And the center is colored using Daffodil Delight Blends. I LOVE those markers, they allow you to quick scribble, or for a better more artistic choice of words, scrubbed in the base color.  Then you come along with the second color and add the darker spots.  So quick and easy.  I set the flower in place using Dimensionals and Dimensional pieces.

The words are from the "Southern Serenade" set.  I stamped them using black Memento ink.  And there you have it.  A card you can stamp, color and assemble all in under 20 minutes.  I have LOTS of cards on my blog that you can make in under 20 minutes.  Click here to be taken to them.  There's over 1500 cards there!!!
