How Blessed I am

Being out of town has delayed me a little, but I'm here now with my  FIRST entry into the 

Here's my finished card that I'd like to share with you, using the digital designs from Polka Dot Orchard's, Good Morning Spring package, designed by Jessica Burnham .  

 For this card I duplicated the center of the flower, and printed it and the Coffee to-go cup on Neenah 110# card stock, then Copic colored.**  I also printed the sentiment from the same package.  I cut out the duplicate flower and applied an even layer with the book binding glue that I use everyday for all my card adhesives - whether it's paper or all the way to heavy metal objects.  I'm not a crafter to have to sort through which glue works for this or that.  PH Neutral PVA adhesive by Lineco does it all, for me.  While the extra flower was drying, I used a 6" white card base and layered my blue floral papers to the design I wanted for the background.   I ran the colored to-go cup image through the Sizzix using a Postage Stamp die.  Once the extra flower was dry,  I glued it to the center of the to-go cup and added the string and painted wooden heart to die cut image, then glued to the card base to finish up the card.

This sentiment in Good Morning Spring is really sweet ~ 
"How Blessed I Am to Know You and to be Your Friend."
