The Flower Challenge #34 - Pretty Pastels Reminder

Hello everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

It's time for a reminder post for the current Flower Challenge! This month we're having a theme which many of you are loving - PRETTY PASTELS.

We have a prize this month. The lovely Bev from Uniko is sponsoring us and giving away one of her beautiful stamp sets (any in stock stamp set and any value) to our lucky winner. 

I've colored the bouquet from Blooming Bouquet by Pinkfresh studio using Prismacolor and Luminance colored pencils in pastel colors. 

I stamped the bouquet on Almond Cream cardstock in white pigment ink to do no line coloring using colored pencils. After coloring was done, I cut the image using the coordinating die and set it aside.  I like the Almond Cream color as it's brighter and warmer than kraft cardstock.

I also stamped and colored the same bouquet on a separate Almond cream cardstock panel and splattered white opaque ink on it. To add the sentiment I decided to make a extra panel cutting the bottom using one of Lacey Edgers dies. The sentiment is from Blooming Bouquet set as well. I gold heat embossed the small words and stamped the big "You" in black and pink in ombre style. On the top border of the panel I adhered the Matte Gold washi tape to add golden accent.

I adhered the Almond Cream panel with the bouquet and white splatters on a white top fold cardbase and foam mounted the panel with the sentiment on it. I then added the colored bouquet onto the card. To finish off I scattered small pink and gold sequins. 

That's it! Hope you enjoyed looking my card today!

I hope you didn't color the entire back panel and then cover it up with the gloriously colored bouquet, TaeEun. That would be a shame. It does look great peeking out from the die cut panel though.

A really beautiful card TaeEun and love that almond coloured card and finished with that pretty border piece placed perfectly just under the edge of the dimensional flower bouquet, also great finishing touches with a perfect sentiment and some spattering. x
