A Better Place

I'm back this afternoon to share with you the opening of the Classic Design Challenge Blog for November.  Our sponsor for this month is Conie Fong Designs and I've selected Isabella Blossoms for my inspirational card. 

I love the softness of this image, such a elegant lady and so fun to color and design this card around her.

I've colored her with Copic markers and surrounded the completed image with very light strokes of Copic V0000. The Gina Marie Designs Pleated Lace Oval die was perfect for adding another layer of elegance on the colored image and the aqua matting.  

I used a pale yellow card base and covered it with a brighter yellow patterned paper.  Next I added the 2" aqua horizontal strip in the center, then topped it with the 1" pink patterned strip.  After securing the colored image to the aqua oval die cut, I added these slightly to the right of the center of the card.
The sentiment came from my stash of prestamped sayings.  After using the same die set to get the same delicate edging, I added it to the left of center, overlapping the image of Isabella.  Lastly I tied the coordinating aqua ribbon and bow at the top fold of the card.
