D. Morgan Rhapsody in Green & Blue

Here is the final card that I created from our "card of the month kit"  challenge.  In February, I received 10 kits, a different one from each of the other 10 ladies in the group. I then had two months to complete and post the cards--and it has taken pretty much the entire two months!  This is card #10--and I think I saved the most challenging one for last.  This card kit was from Darlene and she sure knows me!

Darlene loves D. Morgan stamps and has quite a collection of her great images.  She also knows that I love them--though I so afraid to color them and make a card, because of the detail in each image.  She also sent some wonderful paper and embellishments.  However, I wanted the image to be the focal point of the card, so I did not use much "extra" on the card.  I am saving all of those items for other projects.

Darlene sent some great shiny paper--in green and blue.  That is what I used over the base of my card.


Here is the inside of my card, with a piece of patterned paper behind the white paper.  I added the ribbon with the shell design here!

Image/Sentiment—Stamps Happen D. Morgan Rhapsody in Green & Blue

Cardstock—White, Stampin' Up So Saffron; DCWV Shimmer Stack

Ink--Memento Tuxedo Black

Accessories--Copic Markers; Twine; Antique Brass Brad; American Traditional Designs Silver Shell Ribbon

So--this is the last of the card kits--it has been a blast to receive them and a wonderful challenge to make each of them. I do plan to join more card kit swaps on SCS to continue to branch out and enjoy other stamp companies.  I hope you too have enjoyed checking out all of the wonderful kits sent to me!

Yay!!!! Practically jumping up and down here!!!

I just LOVE the coloring you did on this scene, did you use pencils? The sky and beach are just fantastic, and I really admire how you picked up the blue tones on the lighthouse, ties it together nicely!

Well done indeed! And thanks for giving me a wonderful example the next time I want to use that image.
