HB, Deb

What a joy to make a card for our daughter (although I wish she did not get older - reminds me that is happening to me as well!).  On top of everything else - she is a big fan of my cards!!!  The color is a very dark teal - looks black here.  I also experimented more with the Nesties ovals - I cut the main image and then the bg mat  in dark teal.  I also cut a second oval the same size as the white one - so the dark would show through the slits.  I colored the image with Prismas.  I am not at home right now and have forgotten the name of the SU set - and I thought the corner DP matched the flowers quite well.  I used Cheery Lynn branch dies for the corners.  Hard to see - the pale green is a very subtly patterned paper.  The stamp, solid cs, and leafy dies have been in my stash for a long time.  The ovals and DP are quite new.
