Spring Bouquet

It's time for another fabulous sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and this week our resident Queen of Layers, Narelle, is our hostess.


As we're coming into Spring here in New Zealand, I decided to go bright and cheerful with my card.



This is one of the quickest cards I've ever made!  I adhered two strips of washi onto a white card base to start.  I had a whole bunch of these flowers and foliage die-cut and stamped from a previous card, so I put them together into a bouquet using Press 'n' Seal.  I glued that onto the card base, colored the flowers with Wink of Stella and stamped the sentiment from a NBUS stamp set and I was done!


Thanks for visiting!  The DT have some beautiful cards using this sketch, so I urge you to check them out.

Products used:

Stamps:  Funky Wreath Spring Addition (SugarPea), Mini Thanks (Create A Smile)
Ink:  Black Licorice Hybrid, Teeny Bikini, Twinkling Tutu, Willow, Beanstalk, Sea Glass, Maliblue, Apricot, Coral Reef, Lemon Chiffon, Duckling
Cardstock:  White
Dies:  Funky Wreath Spring Addition (SugarPea)
Accessories:  Washi Tape, Wink of Stella

Cheers
Karren

And only you could "throw together" a five minute card and have it be gorgeous! I love it!

Love this card! I just recently bought some press 'n seal and it is SOOO helpful when you have lots of itty bitty pieces for a collage!

Pretty, pretty! That Press 'n' Seal stuff is a life saver when it comes to putting together floral bouquets like this. And I like the washi tape for both vertical layers. The light and dark contrast so well!

It might have been quick, but I LOVE it and think it looks like a million bucks. I can't get the hang of those little florals, but I love to see them.

This is a complete WOW card for me Karren! Those flowers are just stunning against all that white! I have seen it pinned over and over on pinterest as it is such a standout!
