It's a glorious day!--plus a card

Amazing April weather--feels like summer!  We took the doggies for a day trip to check out the lake where we boat.  The docks are in water & the marina will open very soon.  The 2 open loops at the campground had a lot of people & we were surprised by how many boats were in the lake.  The water would be freezing, but guess they were fishing.  Thought you might like to see a picture of me with Blitz & Keesha.  You can see the top of snow-covered Mount Jefferson in the background.

Now for my card.  I used the vibrant colors from PDCC128 HERE to make my Flourishes TT card where the challenge HERE is to use your favorite stamp set.  Not sure I can say I have a favorite from Fourishes, but the Medallion Motif ranks way up there!  It's one of the stamps I knew I wanted as soon as I saw it in the pre-release post.  The image is colored with COPICS RV19 & YR04 after being embossed in black.  The same markers color the butterfly from the Butterflies & Blossoms set.  The butterfly is covered with Distress Rock Candy Stickles.  The Recollections hard molded flowers are also edged with the same markers & Stickles.  I haven't used this All Night Media punch in ages, but glad I didn't get rid of it now.  The center dies are Spellbinders Labels 9 & a circle.  I had to trace & cut the Flamingo Pink one by hand for the size I needed.  The gems are also colored with RV19--love being able to do that!  Foam tape is used to attach the Medallion panel & die cuts & tiny pearls finish off the card.  I appreciate your visiting & leaving me a comment.  Wishing you a great week.

  5. This is a stunner Greta!! You've used that medallion stamp and the challenge colors to perfection! P.S. Great pic of you and the dogs! Love seeing that snowcapped mountain in the bg! Our beautiful weather here in the Northeast rapidly changed from 80 degrees on Friday to the high 30's :( We actually awoke to a little snow on the ground today!
