Pretty Pink Flowers


The Featured Stamper yesterday on SCS was annieht, and her gallery is just amazing! I chose 4 cards of hers as inspiration to create my own cards today, and this one is my favorite! Her original design can be seen here... http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/588757?what=allfields&name=annieht
My card base is Stampin' Up Pretty in Pink cardstock. I ran a piece of SU! Sage Shadow cardstock thought my Cuttlebug using the Artistic Flowers embossing folder and adhered it to the card base. I stamped a piece of confetti white cardstock with my new Impression Obsession swirls background stamp in SU! Sage Shadow ink that was stamped off once. I also sponged the edges of this piece with Sage Shadow ink. The flowers from Stampin' Up's Garden Silhouettes set were stamped twice onto a piece of pink gingham cardstock (source unknown) using a Marvy Dusty Pink marker and a Tombow Light Moss marker. I added small pink Prima flowers to this with silver brads. I sponged SU! Chocolate Chip ink lightly around the edges and adhered to a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock. I tied a piece of dotted organdy ribbon from Michael's around this piece. The sentiment is stamped on confetti white in SU! Sage Shadow ink from the Stampin' Up Vases in Vogue set, and punched out with the SU! small oval punch. I punched a piece of Sage Shadow with the SU! large oval punch, offset the smaller oval a little, adhered and added a silver brad. This was glued to the edge of the main piece. I ran a piece of chocolate grosgrain across the center strip and adhered it to my card front, then mounted my whole focal image to the card using pop-dots. We learned at church yesterday that one of our members recently had a stroke, so this card is going to her to brighten her day! Thanks for looking!
