Just Us Girls Challenge

It's another Saturday and another challenge from Just Us Girls. Today, Pam Imholz has challenged us to do a flap card. You can find a great tutorial on SCS here. They are very fun to do and are very petite! So cute! I just purchased this dp from My Mind's Eye called Bloom and Grow from my LSS. I just loved the colors! I paired it with apricot appeal and old olive. I chose this image from Our Daily Bread called I Am the Way. I purchased this Easter set last summer because of this lily. I love Tiger Lillies. My dh gave me some when we were first dating, and I've loved them ever since. I even had some in the flower arrangements for our wedding! Anyway, I colored the flower with copics and added some yellow and star dust stickles on it. The flap was cut with the new Labels 13 nesties and embossed it with an embossing folder. It's held closed with magnets from Basic Grey. I made this into a sympathy card (I need about four of them unfortunately). The sentiment is from PTI's With Sympathy. I stamped the flower image in the corner and swirled some Apricot Appeal around the edges of the white panel.

Lisa this is beautiful - elegant through and through - love the bit of embossing on the flap and your coloring - DIVINE! Your tiger lilies just shine - I need to practice highlighting. Great great job with the flap card. :-) Thanks for being a shining JUG! (LOL)

Wow Lisa! You have such a way with coordinating your stamped images with your standard DP. I am always blown away with your amazing coloring. The shape variation on the flap is very elegant too.

Such a beautiful card Lisa. I like how you made your flap and your colors are so pretty and that Lily is gorgeous. The inside with that PTI sentiment is just as beautiful.

This card is a show stopper, Lisa! I just love the Apricot withe the MME paper. Your stitching is excellent, and your coloring on the lily, OH MY, is all I can see! Stunning!
