CTD: Love You Always

My husband is sicker than a dog right now trying to trudge through his residency week over at Auburn, and I feel totally helpless.  I wish I could be taking care of him right now.  He's what I was thinking of when I made this card for the Color Throwdown challenge.  The colors are:  Basic Gray, Ridinghood Red, Crumb Cake, and Daffodil Delight.  Traditionally Sunflowers aren't a Valentine's day flower, but I LOVE sunflowers.  Whenever I see them in bouquets at Sam's I have to buy them.  They are just so big, and their stems are so strong. . .so beautiful.

I used some products from Taylored Expressions for this card.  The image is called Sunflower Bouquet, and the dies are new; Pockets & Pages February Script.  I don't do much in the way of scrapbooking these days, although all of the Pockets & Pages products make me want to.  I've found that these products are great for more than scrapbooking :)

Other than the coloring, this was a quick card to make.  The coloring is never quick, but that's my favorite part so I don't mind ;)

Stamps:  Sunflower Bouquet
Paper:  kraft, dark gray, Choice White
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories:  Copics, TE Pockets & Pages February Script die, Doodlebug Heart Pearls Lily White, foam tape

Thanks for stopping in!
