Seasonal Flowers - Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons

 With the lack of humidity here in the Richmond area the last few days it could almost be spring!  So I'll share a more spring like card today that we made last month at my stamp club.

  In retrospect it was probably a bit too much die cutting for one card for a group but I just couldn't leave off any of the elements!   But my stampers are troopers and they all managed lol!

  This was also the last hurrah for the now retired Marina Mist.  It makes a nice backdrop for the branch and flowers.  The card base is Marina Mist then a slightly smaller panel of Marina Mist that we embossed with the Ruffled embossing folder.

  A piece of watercolor paper is lightly color washed with an Aquapainter and Marina Mist ink.  The scallop as well as the flowers are cut from Blushing Bride.  The other flowers are stamped in Flirty Flamingo and the branch is Early Espresso.

  After cutting everything out with the Seasonal Layers thinlets the branch with flowers was assembled on the watercolor paper panel.  Some of the flowers are popped up with mini dimensionals and highlighted with tiny adhesive pearls.

  This Calypso Coral ombre ribbon worked perfectly with these other pinks so we added a little bow to the branch to finish off the details.

  The sentiment on the inside could be anything you want; sympathy, birthday, thinking of you, get well, or hello.  You never know what kind of card you might need at a moments notice so it's a great idea to have a few blank cards on hand to add a sentiment when needed.  

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
