I chose this Lovely Bouquet image which was kindly gifted for using for the challenge.
Our challenge was celebrations so I went with happy birthday as that is the thing we celebrate most in our house.
I printed the image onto cream cardstock and coloured in using my Stampin Blends. Admittedly I should have paused between the printing and colouring as it did move the line art ink a little but not enough for me to consider it ruined.
I then fussy cut the whole image out.
I created a base panel and used my scoreboard to create some border lines … this was because I was also entering this card into a challenge over at UK stampers forum to include dry embossing.
I adhered this panel to the base card, which is slightly larger with foam behind the middle section so it is slightly raised.
I then stuck the flower image in place.
I decided on some ombre letters for the sentiment so I coloured the scrap cardstock with my stampin blends before die cutting the letters using Playful Alphabet dies. I then cut more out of the scrap cardstock so I could stack them for dimension.
Next I used a stamp from the Artistically inked set for the birthday, cut it out, stacked it once and then edged it with the yellow ink to give it a little dimension.
Finally I added the little flowers as embellishments.
Really pleased how it came out and how cute this card is. I must also remember to use the scoreboard more for the creating of borders like this as it is so elegant.
