Friendship Blooms

It's time for a new Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers and I am the host this week!  I've chosen Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie and Pool Party with a dessert option to add texture.

For my card I stamped the beautiful Friendship Blooms floral stamp and accompanying sentiment on a piece of white card stock.  This is a very large bouquet, so I angled it off the right edge of the panel, leaving room for the sentiment in the lower left corner.

I used a blend of Copic markers similar to the mango and pumpkin colors for the flowers and then used blue greens as a halo around the bouquet.  The leaves were colored with markers similar to Mossy Meadow, a Stampin' Up neutral.  A white gel pen was used to add interest to the flower centers and also color the berries.

Next I took a larger panel of Mango Melody, ran it through the Big Shot with a wood 3D embossing folder for the dessert texture option, adhered the main panel and wrapped it all with some hemp twine.  Foam tape was added to the back, then added to the Pool Party card base.  

Thanks so much for visiting, I really appreciate it!  I hope you'll be able to join us for the Color Challenge this week!
