Wrapped Bouquet

Hi and thanks for stopping by! I feel so torn lately.. lots of making going on, but some real life issues I'm working through too. My sweet girl.. Miss Moriko is having some knee problems, so walking has come to an end. I feel guilty walking without her because she doesn't understand why she can't come along. She's medicated and I feel so bad for her. I've actually been taking her for car rides every day so she can hang out the window and feel like she's walking even if she isn't.
Today I'm playing along with the AAA Birthday challenge. June means FLOWERS and they're always my favorite to make with.
My card starts with an Outlined Butterflies Background. I turned mine into a shaker. I like the look of leaving some of the holes complete - it also helps support the card because I can sneak some foam tape under those areas.
The panel is topped with a Wrapped Bouquet floral arrangement. The sentiment is included in the set and if you purchase the coordinating die set, the sentiment die is in there too!

My florals are colored with Copic Markers and stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. I like to color the petals in individual shades of color vs blending each flower. It gives a stained glass look to the blooms.
I hope you find some time to make. No matter what I've got going on, crafting is always a sweet escape.. whether it's doodling on a pad of paper or coloring. It's a great way to recharge and find the beauty in the simplest of things.

Your shaker card is gorgeous, Jeanne! Someone will love getting a beautiful bouquet that will never fade! You are the sweetest mama to take Miss Moriko for a car ride every day because she can't join you on your walk. I'm all teary-eyed. You're the best!! Hugs, Darnell
