Good Morning Glories!

Happy Saturday!
After celebrating a little bit of winter in the last post, today we will think spring, at least until I go outside.
 This is one of those cards that took me forever to finish. Two sit down sessions to color the flowers, one to color the leaves, a few months to figure out what to do with the image and one card making session to put the whole thing together. The layout is from a sketch on a blog that I ran across last week...sorry I do not remember which one it was (bad Eva!). After I purchased this stamp set, I was lucky enough to run across some morning glories to look at when I was out walking. This helped me tremendously with the coloring. I know, I could google it but the real thing was so much better....also tells you how long I worked on this card since it is now the dead of winter and all spring/summer plant life is either dormant or dead!
Couldn't figure out which angle I liked so I posted both shots.
Stamps: Papertrey Ink
Paper: Enchanted Evening and New Leaf (PTI)
Ink: Memento Black, Night of Navy

Eva, this is gorgeous!! I love how you stamped the morning glories to the side and not right in the center of the panel! Your coloring is fantastic! I love the colors on the card and the alternating sizes of pearls on the bottom. Very beautiful!
