Stampin' Celebration #41

It's Thursday and time for another Stampin' Celebration Challenge!  I loved the color scheme, and I also used the flowers as inspiration this week. 

I started by using my Framed Tulips Textured Impression Embossing Folder on the Whisper White layer.  Such a pretty embossing folder!  Next I added the flowers using a combination of my Baskets & Blooms Big Shot die, Fancy Flower punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, and 5-Petal Flower punch (for the leaves). 

I added some clear Rhinestone Brads to the center of each flower, and popped them up on dimensionals.  For the tag (from the Table Setting  Big Shot die), I used my Garden Green and Rose Red markers to color directly on the stamp.  The sentiment is from the stamp set Word Play.  I took the edge of my Rose Red marker and ran it along the edge of the tag to add a little definition.  (You could do the same thing with the edge of a stamp pad.)  

Even though this card used a lot of different accessories, it was really quite simple and came together quickly.  The colors and sentiment could easily be changed to fit a variety of occasions.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Make sure to head over to Stampin' Celebration to see what the other members of the Design Team have been working on.  And make sure to check out our very first Guest Designer and her project too!  Then make sure to play along with us this week for a chance to be not only Pick of the Party, but a guest designer as well!
