Time to Case- The Flower Challenge

Good Morning.

It's time for another new challenge at  
The Flower Challenge.
This month we are casing a gorgeous card made by Therese Calvird.



I began by stamping the flowers using a set from Stampin Up onto a piece of leftover inky paper.
I fussy cut them out and set them aside.

I die-cut the 'Blessed' sentiment from Penny Black and inked just the bottom using Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers Distress ink.
I wanted to add my flowers to a textured background so I scored lined using my ScorPal and my ScorBug.  I cut the piece to make a split panel then placed my sentiment overlapping both parts.
I mounted the flowers over the panel then added a black gem to the flower centers.

  11. LOVE those flowers ... they are gorgeous. The colour mix is so pretty. And I love the texture from your scored background. You sent me a scor-bug a long time ago, but I've never been able to make a straight line with it ... will try using it with my scor-pal. Thanks!! What jumped out as so unique is the die-cut sentiment. Have the split panel with the sentiment overlapping each and colouring just the bottom is so unique and creative, my friend. xx

  21. Karen, I love the Fabulous Flourettes by Stampin' Up! and you created an amazing card with it, the shades of blue and green look incredible and pop beautifully against your embossed background. Your CASE of Theresa's card looks gorgeous in blue, you made her inspiration, your own.
    Hugs,
    Maria.

  27. The inky scrap was perfect for those flowers, Karen. I can't imagine scoring all those lines. Do you need someone to send you an embossing folder? ;)

  30. What a gorgeous card. That greeting is the best! I like how there is a gap in the embossed panel--just a hint of something different and it really adds to your card.
