Color Throwdown #753

I'm entering a card to Color Throwdown #753 just under the wire, as always. 
Here's the challenge colors: pink, aqua, yellow and lime.

 The colors made me think about flowers and I pulled out The Greetery's
Spring Meadow Stencil which fit the bill.

I used inks from The Stamp Market and Altenew. I'm not really sure of the names
because I was just grabbing colors and stenciling as I went along.

I stamped the sentiment and used a set of matting dies to cut out the panel.
I adhered it to a light gray card base and finished off with some clear enamel dots.

I'd better link this before I miss another deadline. 
Thanks for stopping by!

The Flower Challenge #82 -- Clean and Simple

It's a new month--I can't believe we're into JULY!--and a new challenge over at
The Flower Challenge. This month the challenge theme is CAS, Clean and Simple,
one of my favorite card styles.


The background was made using Altenew's Organic Linen 3D Embossing Folder.
The coneflower petals were colored and assembled and I DIY'd a stem. The bloom was
adhered to the card and finished off with a gold embossed sentiment. I wish you could
see the shiny sentiment. I always struggle with capturing metallic embossing.
While the overall design is CAS, I'm wondering if all those layers make this a
"clean and layered" project? Well, either way, I'm off to link this up.
Thanks for stopping by!
