Morning Glories

     This morning, I've made a card using the new Doodle Pantry set of "Morning Glory" which has now been colored.  The previous set was just outline drawings but now you have a choice of several pre-colored images and of digital papers to match.  There are also several sentiments and even a scripture from Genesis, which I used on my card.  It seemed appropriate for spring, especially when I've been talking the last few days about getting  my garden planted.  :-D

I based my design on the sketch from STAMPlorations.

     I laid out the sentiment scripture first, then added the morning glory image to it before printing.   I die cut it but turned the die just slighty to get the slanted effect.  The lace ribbon came from my friend, Teresa (thanks again!), and the card front has been run through my "Linen" EF.  All the flowers are from my stash.

     The card is really pretty simple although it tends to look more complicated and has a lovely vintage feel to it, which I like very much.  I don't think it took me more than about 15 minutes to complete.

     That's it for cardmaking today but I do want to tell you that we had a freak tornado yesterday about 40 miles from where I live, something very unusual in California!  No damage done since it hit in an agricultural area with no buildings or major highways nearby.  But it did give the weatherman something to relate during the local news last night.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
