Flower Challenge #5

Hi there - I've been inspired to join in with the challenge at Flower Challenge - what's not to love about flowers and today's email advice featured Therese Calvird as guest designer, so my interest was immediately captured!  You can check out Therese's card and those of the regular DTs by clicking on the links above.


I was inspired by the die-cut flowers and the coloured word dies of the very talented DTs, so I searched my dies for a suitable die to play with.  I chose Poppy Stamps Delicate Mums for the flower and SSS 'happy' script.  The stamped birthday is also by SSS - Greetings and Succulents.

Like Therese, I also used a previously coloured card (I was so happy I found it in less than an hour!) and used the inlaid technique to add the colour.  Of course, I could have simply adhered the cut flower over the coloured card, but I prefer this method - and of course I have another outline in pink to add to the inside of my card later.  I did add the narrow strip to the left of the card, and a few sparklies to tie in the grey of the sentiment.
