Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia


Hello and welcome! I am so excited to be  playing along with Taheerah's Advent calendar extravaganza! I just knew the moment I heard what it was about that I had to play too. :) Doesn't it just sound like an adventure?

Join in the fun every day at taheerah-atchia.com to see what special surprises wait behind the door!

Now on to my card :) 

For my card today I used a mix of products from various companies. The flowers are from Ellen Hutson. They were stamped and then colored with copic markers. When I was done with the coloring I added my usual glossy accents layer to add some shine. The GA also makes the paper tougher and more malleable, therefore allowing me to curl the petals and leaves. I used both sizes of the flowers and layered them on to of each other.  The lattice background is a die from Wplus 9 that I just LOVE. It was cut from white card stock and attached to a stone grey base panel. The sentiment is from Papertrey ink and is stamped with Momento tuxido black ink.

    Wow doesn't even seem adequate to describe my reaction to your beautiful card. The whole composition is amazing, but the way you made your flower blew me away - from the amazing Copic coloring to the dimension you created by offsetting the layers and curling the ends, absolutely brilliant! I keep saying this, and I truly mean it, I am LOVING this hop because I am having so much fun being surprised by who is behind each door and seeing what they created! Thank you so much for participating and for inspiring me with your incredible card.
