3M: Grateful Heart

 Hello friends!

I hope you are all doing super!

Today's card is for the 3M card group

and our hostess this month is Jeanette who chose this image ...

She sent us this image from Neat and Tangled Grateful Heart

and this is what I came up with:

I colored the image with Karin Markers and an aqua brush

and repeated it for the background.

I used the neon ones for this image and background

and when it dried, it was very subtle.

Due to that, I dipped the flower in 'marker water' for vibrancy.

The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions simple strips friendship

and I set the image up on paper strips for some drama :)

And that's today's card!

Be sure to see Barb's card here and Jeanette's card here.

Next month, I'm up to chose an image for the monthly card share

so I really need to get to thinking!

Have a terrific day

and thanks for stopping by! :)
