Blooming With Kindness Brayered Card

Hello Friends!

This month has been wonderful, interesting, challenging all at once!  Between traveling to Utah for Founder’s Circle, coming home to two weeks of kids off school (wonderful, but also a challenge!), my PC acting up then just about dying, and getting a new Mac (which I LOVE, but there is a learning curve that I’m working through), I have not been able to crank out as many paper crafting projects as I’m used to doing!  

I will be back into the full swing of things by mid-next week.  Kids will be back at school, I will have had at least two classes at the Apple store and I will be back in my stamp room creating.

Today’s project is one of my favorite projects…maybe ever.  Honestly, this photo does not do it justice, really.  I knew I loved it, but when my friend Vicki came over a few weeks ago I think the woman was about to fall on the floor…she loved it, too!  

It actually was a project re-do.  I did another card with brayering, and all the same colors and supplies, but it looked totally different.  I really liked the card, so I decided to make one using the same supplies and film the process.  That video will be exclusive to StampNation Members.

I hope you enjoy the card!

    This card is just beautiful, Catherine. I love the colors and the sparkle. I am sure it is even more stunning in person. Thank you!
