My sister asked me this week for a birthday card for a friend.  Luckily, Susanne shared her new Penny Black stamp with the Cardologists Thursday night and so I had a colored image.  I liked my water coloring except for one out-of-the-lines blooper that I made worse trying to fix it.

So that meant fussy cutting the flower and mounting it on DSP as well as changing the card color.  Except for the fussy-cutting part, it was a happy accident.   The stamp is quite large, but since the image was cut out I was able to fit it on a card that is 6-1/4 by 4-1/2 inches.

I'd like to welcome my new follower, Liz of Crafty Sunflower. Loving butterfly cards as I do, I was happy to see a beautiful Zen butterfly card on her site that was a Penny Black challenge winner last July.

The bright sunlight we have had for the last two days has disappeared, so now I will go light a fire and sip a cup of tea. I hope you have a good day.


  1. Oh, Dora, it came out beautifully! What an amazing job cutting out that image! Love your color choices and the gems, well everything! I, of course, have not done anything with my stamped and colored flower...

  2. What a lovely card! You did a great job of cutting out the image and the colours you've chosen are perfect.

    Thank you for the welcome as one of your followers. :-)
