Another simple card

Hello sweet bloggers,
This was a card I made a while ago with a Kaiser Craft clear background stamp (using American Craft clay) and when I showed it to Zeenya (my older one) her comment was, "It is too dull, it won't sell". And sold it did the instant I made it to a friend who often buys my cards. Sorry for the poor picture quality... the Sakura copper pen was really shiny and even though I tried different angles, this is the best I could manage. The flower centres have been touched with liquid pearls in mushroom. You may not believe this but plain cards like this sell so quickly that it leaves me wondering what was it about the card that made it sell???


I will enter this card in:
http://blog.oozak.com/ - anything with earth tones

Wish you a pleasant weekend.

Love,
Monica

Love all the pearly drops in your flowers, Monica. And the glistening glitter looks so pretty - almost like dew drops on the flowers' edges. You know what they say, "Variety is the spice of Life." If we did not use earth tone colors occasionally, we could not appreciate the vibrant colors of flowers, too! I have never met a color I did not like, Monica.
love,
