Marvelous Manic Monday

Update: Thursday 8:45 pm. as noted in the above post, things have settled down a bit so I can give you the deets on this card. Pretty obvious that I used the SU! top note layered. The flowers are a mixture. The large ones I have especially enjoyed as these are white textured paper flowers that are easily colored with chalks, markers, watercolors, ink. I wish I could recall the maker, but I purchased them in 2007 { and they lost their packaging :( } I colored the large flowers with Rich Razzleberry and Dusty Durango. Each flower has a button and either ribbon or embroidery thread. The sentiment was the free image from Manic Monday. I distressed it with Really Rust ink (right now I just have the Dusty Durango marker {no ink}), layered it on Rich razzleberry designer label tag. The brads are layered with a 1/4" circle. I like that this is only flowers, paper, and sentiment (no image) . It makes a really special girlfriend card.

Manic Monday at the Digi Shack. Be sure to check it out today for your free digi image. Today, the image is the sentiment "wonderful friend". Perfect for cards or scrapbook pages. I'll be back later tonight to tell you about this fun flower creation, but I didn't want you to miss the freebie.
