I had so much fun playing along at The Play Date Cafe last week that I just HAD to play along this week, too! Isn't the above picture beautiful? That is the inspiration for this challenge. I LOVE the color combo, too! Absolutely delicious! I was actually inspired by some Hero Arts stamps to create a few cards. Only the first card is entered into this challenge, but I wanted to show you both versions.
Here is card #1 (my entry into the PDCC #74):
Now, here is a similar version using a different color scheme and different embellishments. I honestly love these stamps and this layout so much. I could happily make dozens of cards like this...in fact, maybe I will! :)
Supplies for both cards:
Stamps: Delicate Leaf Clusters & Find Joy clear stamp sets by Hero Arts
Inks: All inks used are by Memento
Other: Twine (JilliBean Soup), Rhinestones (unknown), Button (unknown), paper distresser (Tim Holtz), Adhesives (ATG & Zots)

Again, I wanted to add some detail to the inside of the card:Here's a close-up so you can see the diamond glaze on the flower vases:
One of my favorite things to do is add a little love to the inside and back of cards, too. So, here's a picture that shows how I continued the theme on the inside and back. Plus, I learned the fabulous ribbon ruffle technique from watching DeNami Designs' videos. Check them out! You can learn so much!Thanks for checking out my blog!
