we shall live on...

Well, another end of the world prediction down the tubes...YEAH!  Only God knows when that'll happen, so for me, walk on...

Today I'm sharing another card I created using this month's stamp set of the month Sunflowers.  The flowering can is so fun to color.  I don't know why, but for some reason, I keep pulling out my colored pencils to color it in.  Relaxing...yes!  I thought the sentiment was perfect for this card (Be Still).  It's on the retiring list right now (Discounted price:  $10.97) but it won't be retiring for me! 

This card is a little pocket card.  The front panel is glued only on the outside edges so the tag (I NEVER use those tags that are included in the paper kit!) could slide right in. At first, I selected the papers I was going to use:  Angelee.  This pattern reminds me of Frank Lloyd Wright stained glass. I pulled the hint of purple out of the card and found some of my prized HANKO Tsumugi Cardstock (Lavender) cardstock to finish off the mat.   

 Some leftover anniversary announcement ribbon worked perfectly for this tag! 

I distressed the can first with Ranger Vintage photo then colored with colored pencils.  Colors used:  Purple (Crayola Metallic Purple), Light and Dark green (Crayola), Mango Orange (Colorific), Yellow (Crayola), Aqua Blue (Prismacolor), Brown (Crayola)

I'll be back shortly with a few more projects created with the May SOTM!!!
