In case you haven't seen the Slimline cards yet, let me just explain's basically a card that can fit in a standard size business envelope.  Most are 3.5" x 8.5", and that is what I made here.  But basically...a long and "slim" card...have fun & be creative with it!

I used the Vine Design Bundle for this card, and I'm totally in love.  I cut out one of the main "viney" floral images in Vellum Cardstock to ground the focal point.  Then I stamped the flowers and die-cut them out.  The only ink color that I used for the flowers was Magenta Madness...I just kept stamping without re-inking to get the variation of color.  Then I just layered them on the card!  ***Tip:  I used the Sprig Punch, that I just cut up, for the leaves for the flowers.  

For the background piece, I used the Blending Brushes to create a blue ombre.  I used Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, and Bermuda Bay for the blues.  Then I dropped some water on the cardstock panel and dabbed off the water with a paper towel.  This gave me that splatter.  

Love the sequin touch as well!  As well as that SMALL strip of Gold Foil on the left side!  

I hope you enjoy and have fun participating with us this week!  Head on over to the TGIF Challenge Blog to play along!  Also...please let me know how I can help you with your papercrafting needs!  Thank you so much for visiting!
