Missing You in Alabama

Good morning!  Phew!  It's been a busy week so far and it appears to be continuing!  Sorry I haven't been blogging as much this week.  I hope to catch up and visit everyone later in the week.  Right now, I have a quick post to share another card I made with Melanie Muenchinger's gorgeous Stately Flowers 2 stamp set.  I am finding so many uses for the beautiful florals and great sentiments in this set!  This time I did a simple "missing you" card.  I miss so many of my friends since I moved to Alabama!

Here is my card that Melanie posted on her blog:

I started with an A6 card base of GKD  Pure Luxury Green Apple and layered with Bubblegum Pink and patterned paper from the Basic Grey Sweet Threads collection.  I stamped the US map from Melanie's Make A State-ment set with Versamark and Memento Bamboo Leaves onto Cryogen White and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I stamped the top sentiment, also from Make A State-ment with Versamark and Angel Pink and embossed with clear EP.  The Alabama on the bottom is from Stately Flowers 2.  I added a little pearl heart over Alabama on the map.  I stamped the small camellia from Stately Flowers 2 and colored it with Copics.  It was cut out and popped up on foam tape.  A satin bow and another pink pearl heart finished my simple card.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks, Melanie, for posting another of my cards!  I hope to be around a little later on to visit your blogs!
