Basket (or wagon) of blessings!

Waaaaay back in December, when I went to help my daughter through a rough patch in her life, I took a ton of various images with me and all my copics. During the afternoons, after I'd picked up her house and before she came home from work, I'd while away the hours coloring. I did up some Mo Images and some hAnglar stAnglar images also. This card is the recent creation I've made using one of those images. Of course I hadn't selected the dp for it as yet, and had to dig through my stash to find something suitable.

I always need birthday cards, honestly who doesn't? So I got busy and pulled this card together to sit on my shelf waiting for the appropriate birthday to come along.

Here is the front of the card...

I took a close up picture of the image, but it didn't turn out that well. I probably should have taken it again...

Here are a couple of artistic side views...

As you know, I love to create floral bouquets on my cards. I love how this notation panel turned out...

The top panel is quite plain, with a little Romantic Tag stamped with my sentiment (from Cuddly Buddly). I also used the Romantic hearts border die from Magnolia and embossed the panels with one of my new embossing folders called Cottage Floral. All the leaves in my floral arrangements are from Marianne Designs and I absolutely adore them. All my flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and are sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist. The little circular sentiment on the front of the card is from Cuddly Buddly as well.

I hope you find this card inspirational. I'd love for you to leave me a note to let me know...
