Fizzy Moon - Thinking of You Card

Morning Everyone, 

Today is my first ever card I have made using Fizzy Moon, the card is for a friend of mine who is having a hard time with her knee, so thought I would send her something to make her smile.

The card is again based on spring/summer colours so again for this card I have chosen yellow as my theme. 
To start the card I have used a cream a4 base card folded in half, with half the page covered in a spare piece of backing paper I have had which is from the Messy Rabbit CD Collection by Joanna Sheen

The image is stamped using Pro marker pens, and then matted onto a loop square that has been cut using the Cricut Expression Machine and the Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art Cartridge, the flower was also cut from the same cartridge, the leaves have been cut from Stretch your Imagination, and the flower was finished off with a brad in the center and funky foam twisted and heated into a spiral. 

For the Sentiment "Flowers for you" this was stamped onto a cream tag. 

To finish the card I have placed a  band of cream ribbon across the join of the backing paper and the card, and finished it with three yellow gems, and I have used Glossy Accents on the bears nose and the center of the flowers.
