Live Life in Full Bloom

Today I'm here with Jan's Digital Stamps Design Team as we kick off February's new challenge for the month.  

 Jan's birthday was a few weeks ago and today I'd like to share with you the card I made for her special day.  I've used her Spring Tiger Lilies in deep burgundy tones.

After sizing the image to fit my A2 card front, I've printed it on Neenah 110# card stock.  For the flower and buds I've used Copics BV34, R56 and R89.  I remember a time when you couldn't have gotten me to use the 'reds' for a large image.  I'm so grateful that now I'm comfortable with all the shades.  I love the rich velvet look this color combo gives these beautifully drawn lilies.  The greenery was done with YG63, YG93 and G94.  It's a little hard to see in my photo, but I lightly colored the background using RV000 to soften the image.  

After completing the coloring, I die cut the image using Spellbinders Label 10.  The 'left fold' A2 card base is covered with the coordinating burgundy patterned paper and then I secured the colored image on top.  A single wrap of dark green twine and simple bow tied to the left of the image finished off the card.

I hope you will visit Jan's Digital Stamp Shop for this image and many others.  Stop by the Challenge Blog to see all the Design Team cards and to enter yours too!
