more floral cards...

 Hello!  Popping in with a couple more floral cards.  Today's cards are for Freshly Made Sketches and Color Throwdown and Memory Box monthly challenge and Color Hues.  (Affiliate linked list of supplies at the end of this post.  Using my links allows me to earn a small commission at no cost to you.  Thank you for your support.)  First up is my card for Freshly Made Sketches and Color Throwdown.

Super simple card that I boosted up a little with the embossed background.  I used the SSS Brushed Flower stamp set and lovely bright inks from Pinkfresh Studio.  The embossed background was created using the SSS Geometric Lattice embossing folder.  The sentiment is from the Simple Thank You sentiment set and was stamped using VersaFine CLAIR Nocturne.  I adhered everything with thin 3D foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives. 

My second card is for the Color Hues and Memory Box challenge.  The Memory Box challenge is May Flowers making the die set I used called Gentle Blossom perfect for the challenge.  I also used the Memory Box Hello Friend Posh Script die set on the card.  I die cut the flower and leaf parts from bristol cardstock and then inked them with Pinkfresh Studio inks in Berrylicious and Candy Apple and Ocean Breeze and Aquamarine.  I thought using the bristol cardstock would be a good thing, but despite blending on alot of ink it doesn't look like I did.  Also, my aqua is more toward the green side of aqua instead of the blue side of aqua.  Hope that is okay.  This card is also very simple.  I die cut a panel of white cardstock and then just adhered the flower and leaves.  The sentiment was die cut from white cardstock three times and stacked.  I die cut the shadow from thick vellum, adhered the white sentiment and then added it to the card front.

I think I will also add this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge to layer it up.

Rosemary, seeing your card in the Color Hues gallery makes me happy! Thanks so much for playing along with our combo. Your 'shade' of aqua is just fine - color terms may be vague at times, at least I like them that way! Your gorgeous die cuts and inked florals make this card so special. I especially love the sentiment in white and vellum.
