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!
