Elegant Potted Lavender

You may have seen this card HERE from earlier today.

Well, I have to confess that I loved the image so much that I made a second card.

I have used the Potted Lavender digital stamp by A Day For Daisies to make a tall A5 CAS birthday card.  I opened the image panel on my Silhouette Studio design mat and sized it to fit on an A5 panel.  I added the sentiment then printed the image panel on a sheet of A5 X-Press It blending card.  I coloured the image with Copic markers then embellished with some score lines.  I adhered the image panel to an A5 card base using liquid adhesive.

I really like how the score lines add an elegant touch
... but they sure are difficult to photograph.
