2013 Artisan Finalists Blog Hop - Day 7

Hasn't this Blog Hop been great?!?!?! I love being able to see the projects that everyone worked so hard on. I have my fourth card to share with you today.

I really love this pretty color scheme of Baja Breeze (now retired), Daffodil Delight, and Basic Gray. I used the Morning Post Alphabet stamp set, one of my favorites, to say "Hi." For the background I used the Distressed Dots stamp (now retired); I also used this stamp to decorate the flap of the envelope.

I spritzed a Paper Doilies with a mixture of rubbing alcohol, Basic Gray reinker, and Champagne Shimmer Paint (now retired). The Champagne Glimmer Paint gave the doilies a subtle sparkle. I then cut the doilies into quarters and layered it behind the flag. Lastly, the Vintage Faceted Buttons with Linen Thread provide a nice finishing touch to this card.
