Have a Lovely Day

Hello everyone! Hope you're having a wonderful week so far! 

Today I've made a card using the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #225. It will be a last-minute entry :).
I saw a square frame on the sketch and some flowers peeking out from it. 

This is what I came up with!


First I've made a cutting file for the square frame welded with a vertical line. The anemones are from Fresh Cut Anemones Coordinating Outlines stamp set from The Ton. I stamped the anemone flowers in Tattered Rose and the leaves in Twisted Citron DI on Canson watercolor paper and colored them. I used Color Burst Peony for the flowers and Gansai Tambi watercolor for the leaves and the flower center. I cut them all with coordinating dies. I cut the frame from some watercolor paper with my Cricut and colored it with  Color Burst Peony too. On my black card base I gold heat embossed the sentiment, from Fresh Cut Anemones Coordinating Outlines as well, and added some gold splatters (I drew them with my brush- so it's faux splatter :))


I then assembled all the elements together. One leave was glued flat on the card base and the frame along with arranged florals was mounted with some foam adhesives. I added the purple stamen using a glaze pen. 


I want to link this up at Addicted to Stamps and More #246 as well, as they have a Anything Goes week!


Kylie reminded me of the Happy Little Stampers June Watercolor challenge. I'll enter this into HLS June Watercolor challenge- Anything Goes as well :)! 



Thank you so much for looking! 
Wishing you all a lovely day!
