In Bloom - Make it Monday

I'm {finally} participating in the Make It Monday challenge over at Papertrey. They are sharing some GREAT ideas each week. This week: using Copic markers on colored cardstock. I chose to stamp the largest flower from In Bloom onto Melon Berry CS. (Seriously, Melon Berry is so under-appreciated. I love it. Go give it a chance.) I used R02 and R05 to shade... makes me want to run outside and twirl in the spring weather.
The fabby bloom rests on Tag Sale #4 with a {new} Tiny Tag accent. Hope my sweet friend likes it... and I hope YOU do too! ;)

This is really gorgeous coloring Denise. You also couldn't have centered that stamp within the die cut any better! Wish I could line them up that nicely. The lace and pearls were great accents and I agree, Melon Berry is underappreciated. That should be a challenge sometime.

How GORGEOUS is that bloom?!! I love the whole card, actually--the musical background, the trim, the bow, and the whole tag/flower/tag composition! And thank you for giving Melon Berry some love! I couldn't agree more about it being under-appreciated! :-)

Gorgeous card, Denise! I am sorry you didn't win, but your card is just awesome! I also feel that melon berry is under appreciated :), and your card has made me reconsider buying the In Bloom stamp set. Have a good one!

Emily said...

I am making the rounds... did I tell you yet how great this card is? I would have sworn I posted the first time I saw it, but maybe not. But it is so lovely and wonderfully colored, and just awesome. I hope you submit it somewhere!

Jen said...

Hubba Hubba! I can't tell how stunning this beautiful card is. Simply divine! I adore the colors and a combination I am definitely going to have to "borrow". I haven't used TS4 yet as I couldn't get passed the Christmas ornament look of it, but you have totally brought a breath of life into it for me. It is just perfect here. Gorgeous card Oh Talented One!
