All the Flowers of Tomorrow

Today is the last day of sneak peeks over on the Verve blog, and the featured Divas for today have done an amazing job with the two sets being previewed today. Be sure to head over there for peeks and a chance to win both sets just by leaving a comment.

I've used Miracles Blossom to create the flowers on today's card. The sentiment is one of the three Plain Janes that are also releasing this month. Love this saying! The patterned papers all come from Basic Grey's Porcelain collection, which I have a feeling you'll be seeing a lot of here on my blog. The three flowers are stamped on white, colored with Copic markers (R11 and R02), coated with Angel Wings Shimmerz, then adhered to the flower stems with foam adhesive dots. I added some white trim (found at Hancock Fabrics) along the left.

The layout is something I sketched out while looking through a scrapbook magazine. I wish I had written down which magazine when I sketched out this idea, so I could credit the scrapbook page designer. I'll keep looking for that info. Even though I'm not scrapbooking much anymore, I still love looking through the magazines for ideas and inspiration. For me, scrapbooking is just different enough from cardmaking to jumpstart some fresh ideas - especially with layouts.

Here's a look at the inside:

And here's a detail shot of the Shimmerz:
