Bella Flowers

I have to tell you, this card uses my all-time favourite colour combo...pink, brown and green...LOVE IT! I combined two challenges on this card. The layout is from Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #11, and the idea for the card is from the Chicks Inspiration Challenge #2. It's a fun inspiration piece, so pop over, take a look and play along! YOU could be their next guest designer!

The image, Flower Bottles from Stamping Bella, is stamped with Memento Tuxedo black and coloured with copics. I stamped the flowers a second time, cut them out and popped them on dimensionals. I wanted the vases to look like glass so I coated them with crystal effects. The image is cut out with rectangle nestabilities and layered onto a scallop rectangle of chocolate chip. 

The finished card size is 6.5 x 3.25 inches. The base papers are S.E.I.'s Mimosa line (even the solid pink piece), and I used one of my new EK slim border punches for a little detail. I added some chocolate ribbon then finished the card with three punched flowers and three 5mm Light Amber Bella Bonbons

Thanks Karen for a fun sketch and thanks Cathy and Donna for the inspiration piece!

Thanks for stopping by!
Karen

Karen, I probably would have never thought to use those three colors together, but they look fantastic on your card. Love how the bottles look like glass. Great job!
