Again, this is how it works: Michelle got to choose a card from this fabulous card-making world of ours - no problem there. She has chosen a fantastic card, from a doubly-fantastic card designer: Kara Vrabel of K & R Designs! Are you ready to see the challenge card? Yes, I think so!
Pure delight using some awesome products from Wplus9
and my favorite: a slip of vellum!
Now. This is where the real challenge of Playing Cards comes in ... I didn't have the stamp set Kara used. Michelle didn't have the stamp set either ... what to do, what to do?
This is where I get the deciding vote ... we each had to choose something from our own stash of supplies to CASE Kara's card!!! I love it - and it makes the reveal day even more fun.
Enough chit chat already... on with my card. I think you will smile Two Ls - I didn't use flowers at all!
I totally went veggie on you, using the Paper Smooches Green Thumb and coordinating dies!
Kara stamped on white, and actually colored her black background - yes... time to go take another look - I'll wait.
I die-cut the various veggies from my black panel, and again from Neenah Solar White, which I then colored with Copics* and placed in the appropriate spot on my panel. The watering can is a stand-in for Kara's darling bouquet, and a cute little Clearly Besotted bow does the trick nicely, I think. Could there be a cuter sentiment? Pleases my pun-y little heart, for sure.
And that is that! Except to say thank you Kara, for inspiring us with your magical card - hope it makes you smile! [By the way... I've since ordered that amazing Doodle Buds set so don't be surprised when you see it another day! =]
Two Ls, I've loved Playing Cards with you ... thank you so much for the challenge! I'm running over to see your card ... Wait. Do I have to run backwards, or forward at an amazing rate of speed? This time difference just blows my mind - thanks for figuring that out, too! xoxo

* Big giant hugs to Jean Jachna for those Copics!!! I liked them, Jean, I really, really did! =]
