Bloomin' For You!

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday! Here is my card for today's Featured Stamper Challenge on SCS, FS101, which honors jaydekay!!! I LOVE her gallery, and it was really difficult to choose one card to case!!

I decided to case her *Out Of The box Pinks* card, which is TOTAL gorgeousness!!! Here is what I did!!

I kept her GORGEOUS layout and design and used the same stamp set...

*I changed my color to Pink Pirouette with the black and white instead of the Purely Pomegranate she used.
* I added a sentiment
* I added brads
* I added paper piercing
* I used a different border
* I omitted the bumble bee
* I watercolored my flowers instead of using Prismacolor Pencils & Gamsol

I started my card with a base panel of Basic Black, a panel of Whisper White and then a panel of Basic Black & Pink Pirouette. I used the Scallop Edge Punch on the Basic Black panel so you can see the Pink Pirouette on the bottom. On the focal panel, I started by stamping the flowers from Bloomin' Beautiful in Basic Black onto Whisper White Cardstock. I then stamped five flowers onto a separate piece of Whisper White Cardstock, watercolored them using my Aquapainter and Pink Pirouette, and then Riding Hood Red ink. I then cut out the flowers and adhered them to the focal panel, some with dimensionals, some with glue. I added some gold elastic cord just like jaydekay did...

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
