Mixed Media Thank You Card

Finally got a chance to get a better picture of this card.  Some fellow cardmakers were sent fabric Yo Yo's to create with.  It will be fun to see what everyone comes up with.

Of course, I am boring.  I made a card with a flower with a yo yo center.

I had the blue background already made.  I believe I just dipped the watercolor paper in distress inks.  I don't know which blue I used.  I used some green paint and stencil to add the dots to the background.  I added more texture with embossing paste through a stencil.  The black flower was cut with the Silhouette.  I cut 3 layers and glued them together to add a little dimension to the flower base.  Since I had fabric on the card, I wanted to make a fabric bow also.  This fabric is flannel.  After I laid the card out, I decided I needed to add some black into the background so used a new Prima Stamp.  A sticker sentiment from SRM Stickers finishes off the card.

I am going to enter this card in the currently monthly challenge at Mixed Media Card Challenge.   The challenge is blue.  I think there is enough blue in the background and the bow and flower have a shade of blue in it.

Today at 4:30 I started a new chapter in my life.  I retired.  I am excited that I will have some more time to create and explore some new areas of interest.
