Purple Foxgloves Thankyou Card

Again I'm thinking of the Spring and the flowers and fauna it will bring.
I made a mask with a large oval nestie shape cut from copier paper and coloured around the edge of the oval with Milled Lavender.

Using the smaller Foxgloves from Honey Bee stamps I inked with Versamagic Purple Hydrangea. I stamped the flower twice to create a shadow effect. When they were dry I inked the large flower with Versafine Onyx Blackand stamped at the side of the oval and added the Thankyou sentiment.

Thank you for stopping by

Hi Debbie, this is lovely one layer card - great use of the stamps and your Nesties - and your colours and stamping look are impressive!

Hi Debbie, I'm finally getting round to catching up with blogs or rather with leaving comments when I visit, lol!

Love all the pics from last year that you shared. Some nice events you recorded there.

Your quilts are stunning. That's one hobby I never did manage to find time for unfortunately.

Fabulous stampting projects too and this card is no exception. I have those stamps on my wish list but am trying to be good and not spend quite so much on craft stash this year. I'm beginning to waver though, lol!
