Blushing Coral Garden...

Hi there,

Well this week it's my last week on the Dynamic Duos design team so I'm a little sad! But it's been a great six months with an amazing group of talented ladies - I look forward to seeing the new team of designers and what they will inspire us with in the future. This week we have a very pretty colour combo for you...

We are also taking this week to say happy birthday to the lovely and uber talented Vicki, so here's my birthday card dedicated to her...


I combined the Secret Garden stamp set with the jar from Perfectly Preserved for the main panel - the flowers were embossed on vellum with white EP then each had a different treatment : the middle one was embossed from the back with a scoring tool on my piercing mat; the one on the right was sponged on the back with Calypso Coral ink; and the one on the left was highlighted with markers on the back. I then layered them over matching die-cut flowers out of Calypso Coral cardstock. The jar was stamped in Crumb Cake and the stems in Soft Suede, then I layered a birthday greeting (from Made for You) on top (stamped in Calypso Coral on Blushing Bride and punched out with an oval punch. The dsp in the background is from Twitterpated and Floral District and I added some Calypso Coral ruffled ribbon and some pearls to finish.

I used the layout from Freshly Made Sketches to help me...
Make sure you stop by the rest of the FABulous design team and see their gorgeous creations!

Thanks for stopping by...
