Peaceful Waterlily


A quick post for today!  How about a little change of pace from some of the Christmas Cards I've been doing.....?

This is a card I did recently that I hadn't posted here yet....I masked and stamped these beautiful Waterlilies and Lily pads from the Waterlilies stamp set from Flourishes, using Memento Tuxedo Black on Flourishes Classic Ivory.  I colored them using Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.  

Embossing folder is from SU! Elegant Lines, and the beautiful Mosaic Tiles from Flourishes give it some sparkle and elegance too.  

Thanks for dropping by!   My Dad is still in the hospital.  I spent most of the day with him.  I'm really hopeful that tomorrow we'll hear on the pacemaker that he needs.  Thanks for your care!
