Thinking Flowers

Hi!  It's time for another fabulous challenge over at Fusion and this time we have a bright and cheerful challenge headed your way!  First up I'll show you my card, which was a fusion of both sketch and photo.

And here is the challenge graphic.  You can see I focused on the bouquet of flowers in the photo.

I colored up several of the images from Winnie & Walter's In Bloom:  Addie's Garden set, which is one of my favourite floral sets.  Once the images were colored and die-cut, I arranged them into a bouquet and used Press 'n Seal to hold the bouquet in place while I worked on the rest of the card - which was pretty simple!

I found some cardstock that most closely matched the pinks in the flowers and die-cut it with a rounded square die before adhering it to a white card base.  Before I added the bouquet, I stamped the sentiment from a Gina K set, which is fast becoming a favourite for caring sentiments.  Finally I added the bouquet and some Nuvo Jewel Drops and set it aside to dry.

Here are the Copics I used to color the images.

Thanks for visiting!  I hope you'll check out the amazing cards created by the rest of the design team.

I'm linking this card up to CASology who have a Bouquet cue card this week.

Karren, these florals are absolutely gorgeous!! I keep telling myself I don't need more flowers but you are making it very hard to resist! Don't you just love Press 'n Seal?! It's such a game changer to keep multiple smaller stamps together!
