Pallenge No. 6 - Springtime Flowers Challenge

Today's card is one that I made for the Papertrey Pals Challenge No. 6. It was my turn to assign a challenge, so I said to use any type of flower to make a card to welcome spring. I also took this to my office to add to the collection of cards we have there, which we hand out to the employees when it's their birthday.

Here is my card, Happy Birthday.

I stamped a flower from PTI's brand new Beautiful Blooms II set using several Memento dye inks: Tangelo orange, Rose Bud pink and Lady Bug red. I first stamped the entire flower with orange and then randomly added pink and red inks around the edges and center to give it a more natural flower-like look. Then I stamped the sentiment from PTI Birthday Basics with Memento's Bamboo Leaves ink.

The card is embossed using a large classic rectangles nestabilities die, using Nichole's technique: here. I lined scor-tape around the outside edge and added prisma glitter to give it some shine. I finished the card with a light green gemstone in the center of the flower.

Thanks so much for taking a peek at my blog. I appreciate it so much!

Have a wonderful, sunshine-filled day! :)

Monica, I love this varigated (sp?) flower. It DOES look more natural... this is a CAS card and yet the glitter makes it more elegant! Nice work! :)
