Blooming Chrysanthemum Happy Birthday

This die from Memory Box is really an outline flower image, but I wanted to keep the center of the petals intact so I turned it over and added scotch tape to the back before removing the die. I watercolored the image using ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers, added some foam tape to the back and adhered it to a panel I due cut using Gina Marie Designs Petite Looped Lace Rectangle. Mounted the finished panel on a turquoise card base and loved the outcome.

Purple and Silver Blooming Chrysanthemum Sympathy

I had two sweet friends pass away within a week of one another. I will miss them. Valerie had two of her sons living in our ward and so I wanted to create sympathy cards that were purple, since that was her favorite color. This is the second card. I love the elegance of the purple with a touch of silver.
