Happy Super Bowl LII

 A little cake from my MIL Anne for our annual Superbowl Party- My DH makes his dirty rice and beans with sausages- so yummy and the usual party fare of grilled meats, chips dips, cheese and all sorts of not so good for you goodies!

During the first half it was sort of boring so I went into my craft space to Zone and make a card and this is what I made.

 The base card is whisper white. I took another whisper white and diecut HUGS with Large Letter Framelets. I stamped a bunch of flowers with Versamark with flowers from Cake Soiree set and heat set with clear embossing powder onto the base cardstock front.  Colored it in with Melom Mambo, calypso coral and some wisteria to mix the colors.  I then stamped a bunch of leaves in pear pizazz. I kept putting the Hugs diecut piece on top to make sure the flowers and leaves were going to show through. After I did it though the flowers did not pop enough so I daubered some soft sky onto the base card so it would contrast with the diecut piece and it looked better.  I then took a gold marker to out-
line the diecut words- it was a bit messy and I used an old marker that I had and I was not completely happy with it but it was ok-  but it was better than not having the outline.

I cut another piece of flower and some leaves as shown on the left and stamped the sentiment from Lovely Inside & out set in Melon Mambo onto a scrap of paper into a banner and mounted with dimensionals.  The diecut words were also mounted with dimensiionals and the whole card reminded me of those chintz fabric -   Not so overly lovey dovey but still lovely.
