Fred She Said Crocus Card

Don't you just love spring flowers. I am so enthralled with the Fred She Said Spring Flower set found here, that I have decided to do a series of 4-1/2 inch ease cards in each of the flowers. I have the Tulip one already done and will show that to you in the next day or two. I will be working on the Snow Drop Flower next.
So you know me, I always have to work things up a little different. I hate to write on these cards so I created a way to have a tag that slips out to write my sentiment on. I decorated the top as you see here that slips out. It is plain on the back so I can just write my greeting.
This sentiment was something I picked up in the dollar bin at Micheal's. I just love the Ranger Distress Inks and this one is the color Sage. Recipe
Spellbinders - Square Eyelet Nestabilities, Fancy Tag
Martha Stewart - Small Butterfly Punch
Paper - DCWV Pocket Full of Posies
Pearls, Stickles, Ribbon
This image was colored with Copic Markers.

Just gorgeous! Carol, I don't think you will be needing those copic lessons you were talking about. This is colored beautifully and skillfully. Good job on the sentiment piece. I look forward to your next card in the series.

Very nice! I like to make my cards & then add personal thoughts to a tag or additional element when I send it out. I can't bear the thought of messing up a card I spent so much time making!!
