Sunny Blooms

Hi Guys. Just a simple card for today, and not a lot of chit chat.

Mr. Migraine is winning this week something awful
(the big jerk!) ;-)

happy day flowers

The stamp is called Sunny Blooms and it's
from Purple Onion Designs, by Stacey Yacula
.

The blooms are heat embossed in silver
&
I punched circles of distress inked paper
with a 1/4" circle punch, to put under the blooms
as flower petals...

happy day flowers - detail

...then popped the flower centers (which were stippled with
Copic markers) on foam dots.



Hope you like it,

This card really grabbed me! I completely love it. I had to take a close look at your Copic technique. Fantastic. Sorry about the migraine. Today I am your Sister-in-Pain, as I am fighting a terrible Fibro-flare. Hope you feel better soon. Holly M.

I hears on the radio that there may be a new migraine treatment using Botox (I imagine it is used to relax the muscles in the neck ) don't know if it's available where you live? I love your cards and hope you feel better soon :)
