a twist on DP


Shane is spending part of the summer with his dad, and I think when he packed hit stuff, he picked up my mojo too. With all of this extra time on my hands, I should be a creatin’ fool. But I’m not.

But, I did manage this card. It looks so much better IRL. I love those red flowers! They were part of the DP but they were white and looked so stark and yucky, so I decided to color them with my copics and then add my sentiment. I added some stickles to the centers of the flowers for just a little bit of bling.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!

Coloring the flowers red was a great idea. They look so vivid and bright now. I also like how you've placed the three of them on your card front. Nice balance.
