A very simple card for today. It started out with a love for the Basic Grey Sultry paper, the new Spellbinders Blossom die sitting on my table, and the deep need to airbrush something! :) LOL!
The circle was die cut and embossed. I left the die on the circle, stamped the magnolia flowers and airbrushed. The flower was colored with Copics, the darkest parts being colored directly. The lighter parts of the petals were colored with a blender pen that I was using to pick the color off of a marker. A little bit of green was added to the stems, to coordinate with the background paper.
Can you keep my mom in your prayers today? She has yet another doctors appointment for her arm today. I am praying that he will be able to give her the help she so desperately needs. After two years, this battle is getting old and she is exhausted. Thanks for the prayers and thanks for stopping by!

I love how the blossom die looks as a "scallop" edge. I also really like how this floral card has a sophisticated "non-frilly" look to it. Beautiful.
