Hello for The Flower Challenge

Hello and welcome!  It's mid-month and that means The Flower Challenge DT members have more inspiration for you.  

I decided to go with a mini-slimline size for my card.

The Seasonal Blooms stamp from Altenew is huge but it also works brilliantly for filling a corner of a smaller card.  I started by stamping the entire image, then trimming down the portion I wanted for my card front (roughly 2 7/8" x 5 7/8") then coloring with Copic markers.  I love the font for the sentiments in the stamp set and "hello" fit perfectly.  I used my Misti to ensure I didn't mess up the stamping after the time I'd spent coloring.

Two additional panels were trimmed down to just slightly smaller than the colored panel, then layered together for a bit of dimension and adhered to the white card base.  Lastly I added just three sequins for a tiny bit of embellishment and called it good.

I'm so glad you came by to visit!  I do hope you'll use the link above to see all the incredible CAS inspiration by the DT and hopefully join us - the challenge stays open through the 25th of the month, so there's still time.

Take care!
