Hi everyone!  Here's a great image from Sweet Pea artist Karen Middleton.  She's called Face #1.  I just love the deep thought she's in.  I added the perfect sentiment to go with her "Remember" because she's looks lost in her own memory.  I am getting ready to make lots of fun valentine cards an even though this specific card is not for valentine's you can certainly see my coloring patterns in my mind are already thinking about it.
The card base is using some Bazzill printed paper with Glaze;  the frame comes from Spellbinders; and that gorgeous ribbon is some that I got while on vacation in Istanbul, Turkey.  What a great ribbon shop! it was like THREE stories high full of ribbons and  laces.  WOW.  I may have spent about a 100 tl (Turkish Lira--US equivalent of maybe $60).  Be sure and check out the other great stamps from Karen Middleton.  I think this image could be made into a nice Missing you or Thinking of you card as well.

SALE--just got word there is a 25% off sale at Sweet Pea stamp today and tomorrow HERE

Project Materials:  Cardstock (Bazzill Glaze, AC, Neenah);  Rubber Stamp (Sweet Pea Stamps); Ink (Memento);  Die Cut (Spellbinders Nestabilities);  Flowers (Recollections);  Brads(Basic Grey);  Ribbon (Istanbul, Turkiye);  Adhesives (Pop dots, Glue Dots, Glue All, Ribbon Glue); Saying (Sticker-JoAnns);  Color (Copic Markers);
