just a note...

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a card I made for several challenges:  Essentials by Ellen May Pin Sights, Freshly Made Sketches and ColourQ.   I was so happy to see that some of the colors in the beautiful pin-sights mood board corresponded nicely with the colors for the current ColourQ.  I used multiple Essentials by Ellen sets to make this card.  I started by die cutting a white panel of cardstock and then placing the panel in my mini MISTI.  The large flower from the Bold Blooms set was placed in the spot where I wanted it on the panel and then I used the "door" of the MISTI to pick it up.  The image was inked up with Delicata Golden Glitz ink and then stamped.  Since I was using the MISTI I was able to reink the image and then stamp again to get really good coverage.  The two flowers were cut from Calypso Coral cardstock using the Bold Blossoms dies and then the white flowers were cut with the Bold Blooms dies.  Those were then layered together.  The leaves from the Bold Blossoms set were die cut from light grey and adhered together.  The sentiment is from the Essentials by Ellen Fancy Thanks set.  I cut a strip of black cardstock, stamped the sentiment using watermark ink, applied gold embossing powder and heat set.  Then it was time to layer everything up, add a few sequins and adhere the panel to a card base.  I'm also going to post this to the current Time Out challenge as I used flowers on my card and there theme this time is to be inspired by the following quote: 'May all your weeds be wild flowers'
 

Thanks for stopping by today...


Supplies:  Cardstock:  white; PTI black, SU! Calypso Coral, SSS fog; Stamps:  Essentials by Ellen; Dies:  Essentials by Ellen and A Jillian Vance Design; Sequins:  Pretty Pink Posh; Inks:  Delicata Golden Glitz, VersaMark watermark ink
