Eastern Blooms Bouquet Card

Today's card was inspired by Kristina Werner's latest Color Inspiration Challenge! I have the best time participating in these! Here is what she challenged us with this week:



And, here is my card! I used the Eastern Blooms set to build a nice bunch of flowers:



Goodies:
All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Eastern Blooms set, Full of Life set
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, So Saffron Classic inks
Paper: Whisper White, Tangerine Tango cardstock
Accessories: So Saffron wide grosgrain ribbon, Dimensionals, Piercing tool, Chocolate Chip Marker, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Crystal Effects

I hand cut all of the flowers after stamping a bunch of them on Whisper White cardstock. Next, I stamped the branch images onto the Whisper White Square and started to build my bouquet! I used pop dots to pop some of the flowers up. I also curled the edges of the flowers with a pencil to give it a softer look. After they were all placed, I stamped my sentiment and added Dazzling Diamonds using Crystal Effects. I added the ribbon and stuck it to the cardstock base, creating a 5.5" Square card!

Hope you are having a great day! I am expecting some new stamps in the mail from the new occasions mini catty so hopefully I'll have time to play this afternoon!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Just love these colors together. You are much better at cutting out the flowers than I am. The color challenges are a great idea to use other colors.
