Coral, Yellow and Green Garden Birthday Card

(click on any image to enlarge)

 

I really like square cards – how about you?

I stamped the flowers first, then used a little masking to get the stems where I wanted. It looked too flat, so I pulled out the matching dies and embossed the outlines around the flowers and stems. YAY! I didn’t ruin the card!

Sending Best Wishes Floral Card – Ellen Hutson January 2018 Pin-Sights Challenge

I am arriving very late to the party – dangerously close to TOO LATE!

This month’s Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights Challenge is all about lovely shades of purple. Here is the inspiration board:

I was inspired by…the garden photo (top left).

I used Rustic Botanicals to create my garden, and the only unique thing I did was to stamp the little 3 dot stamp 4 times to make the center of the large flower.

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things (You Give Me Butterflies), and I liked how it filled up my white space. The ribbon is, of course, a “thank you” for an order from the Ellen Hutson store.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, My Favorite Things, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Pear Pizzazz, inks – Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lilac (retired), Orchid Opulence (retired), Pear Pizzazz, VersaFine Onyx Black, sequins – Simon Says Stamp, embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl, ribbon – Ellen Hutson.
