Sending Hugs & Happy Thoughts.....{MCT Thoughtful Thursday}

Good Morning everyone!
I hope you are all having a GREAT week so far!!!

It's Thursday  which means time for another
Spring is in the air here so my card was inspired by some of the beautiful flowers that are starting to come into the stores around town using the newly released Beautiful Day set.
Take a look and let me know what you think.....
I got a little inky with my card today and played around a bit with masking....not bad for my first time I have to say :)
To make my card I started with a white card stock mat that was die cut using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die
Next I stamped the flowers randomly around the bottom of the card mat using the the Beautiful Day set. The flowers were colored using my copic markers and for some added dimension, I used my white gel pen and some white Nuvo Crystal drops for the centers.
Once the crystal drops were dry, I die cut the same flowers and laid them over the stamped images. Using Salty Ocean Distress Ink, I inked over the white card mat and when the die cuts were pulled up it left a beautiful colored background and a pretty white border around the flowers.
Moving onto the finishing touches of my card, I die cut a piece of black card stock and added the border using the set Pretty Edge Dies
The sentiment, also from the Beautiful Day set was stamped onto the banner die from Chocolate Greetings
One more flower colored with my copics was added above the banner sentiment to complete my card.

So what do you think of my card? I love the background and if you haven't tried masking yet, you really need to!!!

 Want to see more projects?
