In Full Bloom

Hello everyone!!

I am just popping in with a couple of cards I created this weekend for some challenges.

My first card is for this weeks CASE this Sketch Challenge #378. While this card did not come out as I had planned, I am still entering this into the challenge anyway.

Here is the sketch that inspired my card:

The flower is the Peeking Daisy die and sentiment is Tiny Words, both from Simon Says Stamp.

The paper is from Lawn Fawn (gingham) and Prima (yellow flowers). I colored the flower in with Copic Markers.

I added some glossy accents to the middle of the flower and some gold sequins around the sentiment to finish the card off. Lately, I am in bling mode!!

My second card was inspired by The Fusion Card Challenge. I was inspired by both the image (the blue colors and flowers) and the sketch. However, I did flip the sketch to make it a portrait card.

I decided to pull out some of my pattern paper 6" by 6" paper pads to embellish my cards. I combined Dress My Crafts Hydrangea Lawns paper (background) with some Pinkfresh Studio Joyful Day stripes.

I then added flower pot with flowers that I die cut using Lawn Fawn's Little Flowers dies. I have had these flower dies FOR YEARS but have never used. They have been sitting on my desk to play with and this card was the perfect card to use them on.

The sentiment is from Altenew's Paint a Flower: Rose stamp set. I heat embossed it in white.

I do not usually make my backgrounds this bold but I LOVE this paper!! Hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers, even if I cannot get them to flower in my yard no matter how many times I watch videos on how to care for them.

I am also going to submit this card to Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.
Well, that is all from me today. I thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS day!!!
