More Texana bluebonnets!

Today's card uses more stamps from Texana Designs - this time an actual bluebonnet image! For this card I played along with *last* week's Raspberry Suite color challenge from the fabulous Dawn McVey - brown, teal, white & celery. Ok, I may be a little off with the "celery" - but hey, it's not like I'm playing along ON TIME anyway! :-) I colored the bluebonnet image with my Copics, then added Star Dust Stickles to the white parts. The cute sentiment is also from Texana Designs - as part of their partnership with one of my other favorite Texas stamp artists, Joyce Meyer (more on her in an upcoming post!!). I colored the sentiment with Stampin' Up markers directly on the rubber before stamping, and then added Stickles again to the heart. A little Cuttlebugging, stitching, brads and voila - a finished card! Yay! Thanks for stopping by today!
