2 Flowers card



I made this card for the card sketch challenge at Tamara's blog. You can check out her challenge here.
This is my first time trying out one of her sketches. This looked like a fun one!

I made the stems of the flowers with some scrap chipboard and dabbed them with Old Olive craft ink. The leaves came from the Onboard Blossoms and Basics chipboard set from Stampin' Up! I dabbed them with Old Olive craft ink and drew some lines in with the Uniball white gel pen. The flowers are made using the Felt Fusion flowers. What's cool is that the flowers in set are the same colors as the Bali Breeze designer paper. So picking colors and coordinating was a no brainer! I used the Ice circle rhinestone brads for the middle of the flower.

Recipe:
Stamps: Daisy Dash Jumbo Wheel
Ink: Old Olive Craft ink, Tempting Turquoise ink cartridge
Paper: Bali Breeze, Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise
Other: Crystal Ice rhinestone brads, On Board Blossoms and Basics chipboard, Felt Fusion Flowers, Uniball white gel pen, mono multi glue
