It has been crazy busy around here with the kids finishing up school. Tomorrow is the last day for my two youngest and that means year end gifts for the teachers. I am the room parent for my 9 year old's class so that meant organizing a group gift from the kids and parents and of course making a card to go with it.
When the Helping Me Grow came out in the occasions mini I knew I had to have it and I was thrilled when i saw that it made it to the new Catalogue. I started off with a Tip Top Taupe card base then layered on a piece of Serene Scenery DSP (I LOVE this paper stack). the flowers were stamped on Water Color Paper. Then using Pool Party Ink and My Aqua Painter I watercoloured the background. The flowers were coloured the same way with Sweet Sugar Plum and Wisteria Wonder inks. To create some extra interest and texture I used the tiny "ink splatters" stamp from the Timeless Textures stamp set with Sahara Sand Ink. To finish the card off I added a few basic pearls and of course a little ribbon:)
