Thinking of You Blossoms - Stampin' Up! Varied Vases - Fab Friday 158

I can't seem to get my act together but once ever 2 weeks lately!  At least I'm getting my Fab Friday cards done!  This is such a beautiful color combination this time that it was very easy to design a card.  Sometimes it's much more of a struggle!

  Check out these lovely Fab Friday Challenge colors!  Can you say "spring", "flowers" and "Easter"?

  I'm not usually one for much pink but Petal Pink has really grown on me.  Maybe it's because it's got a tad bit of peach in it and it's not a straight up baby pink?

  I felt like doing a bit of coloring and the Varied Vases set hasn't seem much action since the Occasions catalog was released so I pulled it out and started stamping.  I like the simplicity of the orchid blossoms so that's where I started and built the clean and simple card around those beautiful blooms.

  All the stamping is in Memento ink and colored with Stampin' Blends.  I stamped one stem directly onto the strip of Whisper White so that it is in the vase.  I used a sticky note to mask the vase so the stem disappears.  I stamped a second stem and a leaf onto a scrap.  After everything was colored I fussy cut the second stem and leaf and I adhered them with dimensionals

  I hadn't decided on any embellishments until I noticed a teeny tiny smudge of memento ink next to the vase.  I didn't want to start over so I used some Old Olive linen thread (which goes well with Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz just to let you know!) to cover over it.

  The card base is Petal Pink with a smaller layer of Petal Pink embossed with the Tin Tile embossing folder.

  I hope you'll check out the rest of the Fab Friday Design Team and then join in.  This color combination is too good to miss!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
