Hello Friend!

Happy Tuesday!  I am popping in with a card to share today.  I am playing along with a few blog challenges.  

I am playing along with a few blog challenges.  I am playing along with the 30 Day Coloring Challenge, Inspirational Challenge, and Double D Challenge.

I was inspired by the grid pattern bottom right.

For my card, I started with some smokey shadow card stock base.  I stamped SSS Modern Rose Blooms on the front using versamark ink to add some subtle texture and depth.  Next, I die cut MFT grid die from Blueprints 27.  Waffle Flower has a similar version here.   I die cut it twice using more of the smokey shadow card stock.  I layered two panels together with one upside down so I could have a full grid. I used my Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to add to the card base. 

Next, I stamped SSS Delicate Flowers stamp set using Momento tuxedo black ink. I colored the flowers with Copic markers.  I used the coordinating Delicate Flowers die to cut them out.  I arranged them on the card using foam tape for added dimension and some Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive for less dimension.  

For the sentiment, I die cut the grid panel die again using select white card stock.  I used the sentiment from the SSS Delicate Flowers stamp set and stamped with Black Premium Hybrid Ink onto one of the white cutouts. I adhered this sentiment inside the grid using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  I added some white dots to the centers of the flowers using my white gel pen. I finished my card with a few Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins.

For your convenience, here is a list of many of the products I generally use every time I make a card.
