love you DD (Moxie Fab)

Well, it's official.  Another step in growing up.  DD was confirmed this weekend.  My little girl is turning into a beautiful young woman.  Proud?  Yep.  Glad the weekend is over?  Yep.

Here's here card.  She's into mint green at the moment so the flowers had to take on green tones.  And there's a challenge at Moxie Fab World to give trendy watercoloring a go..  Don't have to ask me twice.


I had definite inspiration for this.  Have you seen this bold beauty?  Thanks for the idea, Kelly.

And thanks for looking friends.

Paper: cardbase Craft UK, PP scrap, watercolor paper Hero Arts
Stamps: Scenic Route, U Technique Tueaday, sentiment Papertrey
Ink : Memento, Versamark, watercolors

Other: gold embossing powder

I love the unexpectedness of your work. Always something new to see. For this one it is the gold embossing with the casual feel of the watercolor

Oh, this is so pretty! I like the contrast between the soft fluid watercolours and the big graphic U. And the hammered texture on the embossing. Nothing wrong with green flowers!
