Monochromatic Ribbon and Flower Card

Monochromatic. Simple. I like it.

The flower strip is a die cut from a packet of Paper Frills (lily white) by Doodlebug, colored with Copic marker V15. The uneven coloring looks nice on this card, I think. I used Ranger Liquid Pearls for five of the flower centers. The 3/16" ribbon is also colored with V15. The sentiment "Thinking of you" is computer-printed with light purple ink in Lucida Calligraphy font. The card stock is Hero Arts lilac.

Below is a blue-gray version of the same design, with tiny round stones instead of pearls. Both cards were created for Operation Write Home, "supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them." (057)
