Happy Columbus Day, Marnie here!  Today I am sharing a pretty card using an amazing Hero Arts Antique Gratitude CL780.  The focal point flower in this set is Amazing Lilies so I colored them like Tiger Lillies with watercolor pencils.  The background is also watercolored. The piece is cut into an oval and layered onto Orange Cardstock. The flower has gold Wink of Stella centers and stamens which are hard to pick up in the photograph.  The greeting “SMILE” comes from  Hero Arts A Little CL758.  It’s stamped in black and then glossed up with Glaze Pen.  I created a background with a Hero Arts Stencil  and some Gold Embossing Paste on Kraft Layering Paper. There are a couple of little gold rhinestones for more shine at the bottom.  The entire piece was popped up onto a Kraft Card.   I hope you like it.  Thank you for stopping by today!

  1. Great card Marnie! Love your watercoloring!

  2. Happy Columbus Day to you Marnie! Love this pretty card and think the colors are so perfect for Fall! I’m heading out to a event at my LSS today and the route I travel takes me through some amazing Fall Foliage, which is so beautiful here right now! Your card colors remind me exactly of Fall and I think you did a fabulous job!
