I'm A Pepper

So the Flourishes Newsletter is hosting a challenge - - For the entire set of Flourishes stamps. I don't own many of them, but I want to own more!!!! This is for a chance to win the whole February release. YAY!!!  The challenge is Whats Your Cup of Tea Challenge.  You are to be inspired by your favorite beverages container.

Well, I have many favorite beverages. Unsweet Tea, Sugar Free Cherry Koolaid, Cherry Limeades at Sonic. But really, if I had to pick one drink that I drink almost every day it would be the Diet Dr. Pepper. 

So... I had this Flourishes Stamp that I had colored previously, and hadn't used on a card yet. It is from the Year of Flowers Calendar set. I colored the roses with copics R22, 24, 27, 29 and used a little of the copic blender to lighten certain areas.The leaves are G21, 24, 28.  This is mounted on a small black oval and a larger maroon oval. The "Love you" is from Flourishes as well. I stamped it first in Versafine Red and then over-stamped it slightly offset with Versafine Black. I then clear embossed it. It is set in a maroon slightly off-centered oval. I added two strips of black ribbon (the actual drink itself), and I had to add a yellow cap, because all the ones that come out of my vending machine at work are topped with the yellow cap.

Since it is Valentine's day coming up soon, I thought this made a nice Valentine's card.  Thank you for stopping by my blog. Hope to see you back again soon.
