Greetings Dear Friend - a card by Jenny Gropp

Guest Designer Jenny Gropp was inspired by fall colors and beautiful teals to create this beautiful card.Here are the step by step instructions for this beautiful card below in her words. Happy Stamping All! We hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

  Now these are my colors! I love this color combo. It is from the new Bo Bunny Collection "Mama-Razzi2" 6x6 paper pad. I paired these colors up with another new set of stamps from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. The set is called Spring Flourished Ovals Clear Set. You can see the set below, lots of combinations to mix and match with the multiple sentiments. Of course there is a Coordinating Die too!

 I stamped the image on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White paper using Memento ink. I hand cut this out. You can see I darkened the outside frame and added a little blue highlight around the inside of the frame. There is a coordinating die for this, I used it to cut out a small layer for the image. 

 I stamped one of the sentiments from the set in the top portion of the frame. I added some Copic color to the little whimsical flowers.

 This is the inside of the card. You can see I added another sentiment on the inside that is also in the same Spring Flourished Oval Set. 

Here's an up close of the front of the card. I added foam tape in between layers for dimension. Viva Clear Glass Effect Pen on the Flower centers for a little shine. I love the little lace border die that PPRS came out with! All my layers are created with Perfect Layer Rulers. The bow finishes it up for this card.
