Oxalis Coffee Cup

Today I bought myself another digital set from Artsystamper called Lucky Oxalis and this is one I will use for St. Patrick's Day cards and for other reasons too. I owned two Oxalis plants at one time and one had white blossoms and the other one had pink blossoms. So with the card I made today I went with the pink blossoms. I did download the colored image of the Oxalis but I colored the blossoms in pink with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I also used a sentiment from the set.

The die cut cup is from Picket Fence Studios. I cut that out after I had  printed out the Oxalis. At the same time I also printed out a sentiment from the set and some extra blossoms which I colored with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. The sentiment and blossoms were cut out by hand. Along with Lucky Clover, White and Passion Pink card stock from Gina K. Designs I assembled my card together. The one panel was die cut with a stitched rectangle die from Makers Movement.

Inside the card I added a panel of white card stock so that I can later write or stamp a message. I am not sure yet what I will add inside but this way it is ready for whatever I choose to do.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Artsystamper Digitals Challenge #10-Hot Drinks
Jan's Digi Challenge #8-Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping in and I always love to read the comments you leave me. Have a great evening!

God bless,

Such a pretty card and the lucky clovers in the pinks look beautiful. The vibrancy of the colours looks fabulous too x.

What a pretty card Vera, and I love how you have used, and coloured, the image.
Here oxalis is a WEED - and a dreaded one too as it is very invasive, so I smiled when I read your post and saw that to you, it is a treasured garden plant :)

It is a cute card, pink and green is a top color combo for me, but I am going to have to look up the oxalis, I do not know what that is!
