Flowers of Gratitude


Hello!  It is a rainy day here so it  will be a day inside with housework and laundry.  Or NOT! Maybe just a play day in the studio?
My card today is CAS and One Layer made for several challenges.  I used GKD Heavyweight CS that I find is the best CS for one layer cards using Copic Markers....absolutely no bleeding to the back side. I used Repeat Impressions Vase of Tulips stamp that I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Gold EP. I added more versamark ink and Gold EP to make the vase golden.  I colored the flowers with Green and Blue Copics.  The sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers was also heat embossed with Gold EP and sponged with a bit of blue ink to highlight.  I edged the entire Card with Pilot Gold Metallic Pen.
