Vellum Flowers Just For You Card - Inkspirational Aug Sketch Challenge (#35)

It's time for our monthly sketch challenge at Inkspirational and here's the fab layout we'd like you to work with.


For my colour scheme I've gone for summery, fondant pastels with a bracing dash of Espresso  to cut through the sweetness!  I stamped three flowers onto vellum, heat embossed with white powder and coloured the flowers from behind using markers.   After punching out the flowers I attached them to the circles with rhinestone brads.  The Pool Party card base measures 5 3/4" square and I added texture to the white panel with a diamond patterned Texturz plate. I layered the white panel onto an Early Espresso mat,  added the strip of Pool Party ruffled ribbon and glued the layers to the card front.  I stamped and matted the sentiment circle, popped all four circles up and added the three coloured pearls to complete the card front.

I cut a white panel for inside the card, added a sentiment oval and some stamped flowers.  I placed a flower circle on the envelope flap too.  

I really hope you'll play along with us at Inkspirational this week and make cards using this great sketch, I'd love to pop by your blogs to see what you've made!
