If Friends were Flowers, I'd Pick You!

Happy Tuesday!  I am popping in with a card to share today.

I am playing along with a few blog challenges. 

AAA Challenges

HSS Color Challenge

Just Us Girls

For my card, I started with a top folding aqua mist card stock base.  I stamped one of the leaf images from Simon Says Stamp Delicate Flower stamp set around the edges using aqua mist ink.  I die cut the berry sorbet card stock with a stitched rectangle die.  I stamped this panel with the Graduated Dotted background stamp using berry sorbet ink.   I added this panel to the aqua mist base using foam tape for added dimension.

Next, I used vellum, an anti-static powder pouch, and versamark ink to stamp the flowers from SSS Delicate Flower stamp set.  I heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  Then, I die cut using the SSS Delicate Flowers coordinating dies.

I layered the gold embossed vellum flowers over stampers select white card stock die cut flowers using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  I arranged the flowers and sentiment.  I used some foam tape as well as a permanent adhesive roller.  

 The layered gold embossed vellum overlay gives the flowers and leaves a soft pastel pink hue reflecting off of the coral.  I love the effect. For the sentiment, I used a pack of SSS Sentiment Strips 3 Celebrate You for the sentiment.    I finished the card with 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.
