 Melanie's set includes wonderful sentiments along with beautiful floral images. This pink on pink design with a hit of white and bling! You know this is going to be Lee Murphy's favorite!

It is so hard to see the shimmer of the flowers on this clean and simple card. I used a watercolor brush with shimmery gold ink on the edges of the flowers. It sparkles so beautifully!

The shimmery ivory base of this card is not captured in the photograph (I have such a hard time photographing the white/ivory cards).  This is a simple design with the passionate pink sentiment cut out with the flower die. I thought it looked like a ball of yarn. I used beige thread and dyed it hot pink with a spectrum noir marker!

I used a distressed lines embossing folder on the base of this card. It reminded me of the fringy look of yarn.  Perfect for a card about knitting! The set had this basket of yard balls, so I added the sentiment and the knitting needles sticking out of the basket.  The thread is dyed blue to match the yarn on the card. I simply ran a spectrum noir marker over the thread and it dyed instantly! Only took a few moments to dry too!

This Diva was pretty easy to color.  I tried my hand at knitting last year during swim meets.  My knitting is still in my office - unfinished.  I guess I should bring it to the next 3 day swim meet and finish the blanket I started! HA HA!
