This was really a fun one to do, of course any time I can just sit and play with the Copics, I am a very happy girl. This is one cocky flower though, lol.
This is a 6X6 card.  Remember those huge flowers, I think they were Heidi Grace but can't remember for sure, so I pulled them out for this card, I adhered two together but not exactly even one down a little so it was more like an oval.  Paper is by BasicGrey, misc. gems, photo corners by EKSuccess.  "F" is QK "Blossom".  Face was done on a Spellbinder's Oval (sure am having fun with these) and face was done with Copic markers, I then embossed with the Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots". 



Inside background w/out vellum

Inside vellum overlay



Inside it says "F" is for Flower Power, may you be filled with it all day!  I can't remember if I have ever shared this fun trick with you.  I have a 1950 copy of  "Sunset Garden Book", it is much loved and I love to copy pages for flower cards but then you have a problem because where do you write?  So what I do is cut a piece of vellum (make sure that is printer quality) cut to 5 1/2w X 6"h if I am doing a 6X6card, I then fold it tight to the background and secure it in back with 2 sided tape, then adhere the whole piece to the inside, then if the recipient wants he/she can just lift up the vellum and read or see the background. 

Happy Tuesday, Hugs

Hellooooooooo Sandi! How excited I was to see you on my sidebar! Glad you're back, girlie! Love your card, so full of whimsy! I think the flower looks much better this way, with it's petals plucked and reorganized. And very interesting inside as well. I love vellum on the inside of cards.
