Flower Panel Thinking Of You Card - Simply Stampin' Challenge #67

It's sketch layout time again at the Simply Stampin' challenge blog - and it's another winner!

I used the SU! Bordering on Romance set and a fave eggplant and olive colour combo - with some plum and white thrown in.  I made my 5 3/4" card base with Elegant Eggplant CS, punched a white lace strip for the centre and added two strips of Old Olive dotted scallop ribbon.  I cut a white Label Framelit shape and I used markers to colour the 'Thinking of You' with olive and eggplant inks.  I stamped the floral images onto watercolour paper, coloured with inks and a blender pen, added some white gel pen highlights and fussy cut all the images.  I stamped and coloured the three flowers from the largest image separately and popped them up after cutting them out.  I matted the label shape onto Perfect Plum and Old Olive layers and added rhinestone jewels to the label and the flower centres.

For the panel inside the card I punched an eggplant lace strip, placed 1"punched olive circles behind and added punched white Itty Bitty flowers with jewel centres on top.   For the envelope flap I stamped and coloured the floral sprig and used Label Framelits dies to mat and layer.  Now it's over to you, go and check what the other DT members have made and then go and get inky and join in with our sketch, I'd love to come and see what you create!

Wow Ruth, this card is amazing. I love the careful cutting and colouring of the flowers. It is also a stunning colour combination.

I also love how you have used the lace border punch on the inside of the card - very clever.
