Simple Lattice Blooms


Happy Tuesday! It's time for another great colour challenge over at the ColourQ and this week's colours are so pretty...

I seem to be in a very florally place at the moment (I keep thinking 'what flower set can I use with this combination?'), so I pulled out Simple Stems and a Bigz die I hadn't played with in a while...

I used Blushing Bride instead of Pretty in Pink, and started by rolling the Very Vintage wheel across the bottom half of the card (this will be retiring soon!) with Blushing Bride ink. I then added a Naturals White Window Frame shape to the side as well as a Whisper White Lattice die-cut (sadly, also retiring!) and trimmed both to fit. The flowers are from Simple Stems, stamped in Pumpkin Pie and Calypso Coral, with the centre one layered in three pieces with a large pearl in the middle. The leaves were die-cut from Old Olive card with the Little Leaves sizzlit (also retiring.. so sad!) and given some dimension by shaping them with an embossing tool on a foam mat. The sentiment is from Petite Pairs, die-cut with the smallest banner framelit, and I layered a dsp banner behind that. I couldn't resist adding a few more pearls to finish!

I used this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch for my layout:

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Simple Stems, Petite Pairs, Very Vintage wheel
Ink: Blushing Bride, Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral, Old Olive
Paper: Whisper White, Naturals Ivory, Blushing Bride, Old Olive, Epic Day dsp
Accessories: Pearls
Tools: Lattice Bigz die, Window Framelits, Secret Garden Framelits, Banner framelits

I'm also entering this into the current Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge.

Make sure you check out the fab creations by the rest of the Royal Court this week!
