Colour Q Flowers


I wanted to pop in and share a card I made earlier this week for the Colour Q challenge - the colours were so soft and spring-like:

I broke out some new mini-catalogue goodies to play with this one - the Fun Flowers Bigshot die is so fabulous! The dimensional flowers you can create are amazing - I created some Saffron and Pink ones for this card:

The leaves were created with the Build a Blossom stamp set and coordinating punch with Old Olive cardstock and ink. The scallop circle in the background was cut with the new Bigz die and Bashful Blue cardstock. I pierced holes in each scallop for extra detail. The white layer over the top was created by die-cutting a scallop circle, cutting off the scallops and then distressing the edges with the SU cutter kit. I added some big brads from the Hodgeposdge Hardware kit and some rhinestones to the corners of the card. The sentiment is from Just Believe - love this expression!

Thanks for stopping by!
