Hi everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend.  Mine was okay.  I spent a lot of time cleaning the house which was good, but it means I didn't get as much card making done as I would have liked.  I have to admit though, that having the house clean feels really good!  

The card I'm sharing today is one I originally made for  a challenge which was based on a photograph where you were supposed to make a card based on the colors you saw in the photograph.  I saw red, black, and green.  

The image that I used is from Squigglefly and is by Lynne Stansbery.  It's from a set of all different kinds of flowers called Flowers Set.  I printed the flower twice and cut out the middle part to pop it up for dimension.  Once I had the layers of the flower down, I used a light gray Copic marker to make a shadow around the image.  The sentiment was computer generated at the same time I printed one of the flowers.

The corner is a die I just bought that I colored with Copic markers.  The back ground which is the card base is embossed with an embossing folders.

I want to remind you all that today is a new challenge on the Squigglefly blog!    I hope you find some time to play along.  I'm going to try my best to play!
