Special Thoughts of You

Michelle P here with a clean and simple card perfect for letting someone know that you care.  We are dealing with some family responsibilities of late, so a thinking of you card of the Clean And Simple sort came to mind!

I used the Large Poinsettia in a different way....I colored it purple and to me it's a Clematis for this card!  I stamped it with tone-on-tone ink for my background paper and then accented my blower petals with Copic Marker BV000.  It fades away to almost nothing...but I like the subtle shaded look.
Next I used One and Only Tape in two ways on this card....first to tape down my Spellbinders Fleur De Lis border and next to add a touch of You're So Fine Glitter in Purple Rocks along the top of my card.  I added some Candi from the Lavender and Lace collection to my die cut with Candi Fix.
I added a touch of glitter to the Special Thoughts Outline stamp with a lavender copic spica glitter pen.  I stamped the Small Poinsettia and colored it with the following Copic Markers: BV04, BV02, YG95, YG93, Y38, Y35.  I fussy cut my image and used the One and Only Tape to adhere it to my card.

My final embellishment is a Martha Stewart butterfly punch embellished with some gems.
