Hi, Diane with you today.
We are on our 98th challenge and this week
it was a color photo inspiration.
One thing I love about color inspirations,
is that you can go with all the colors, or just pick out a few like I did.

I chose blue, pink and the green, plus adding polka dots
as shown in the photo.  Scroll on down on the blog to see
the inspiration photo, and we would love to see you join us
with YOUR interpretation of it.

I love vellum, and I love coloring on vellum,
which is what I did for this card.
I started first by inking Heartfelt Botanical Rose
with Versamark, embossed with Sparkle N Sprinkle White Fine Detail
embossing powder.

Then using the coordinating Heartfelt Botanical Wings die, 
I cut it out. then I colored on the back of the vellum with Copics.

The green leaf stamp is part of the Botanical Rose stamp set,
and the leaf die is part of the  Heartfelt Botanical Wings die set.

I carefully used the Paper Blossoms  Craft Molding Mat and Tool Kit
to shape my flowers.

I cut a white card stock base to adhere the flowers to
which I used a Spellbinders Scallop Borders Three die
for a pretty and decorative edge.

I tucked a piece of Graphic 45 Botanical Tea  6 x 6 paper
under the scalloped edge.

I finished off with a ribbon bow, a few leaves and Pink Pearls.

Thank you for visiting with me.
