Okay, so there really was no occasion in mind for this card, but I always seem to need birthday and thank you cards at the last minute...I went with birthday on this one :O)
I used the Taylored Expressions sketch #63 (TECC63) for the layout and the Color Throwdown Challenge #37 (CTD37) for my color palette. The colors for the Throwdown were Sage Shadow, Cameo Coral, and Pink Pirouette. It's hard to see in the picture, but I used Pink Pirouette as a highlight color with the Cameo Coral on the flowers.
This is a 2-Step Stampin' set, but I decided to use the outline stamp and watercolor myself vs using the coordinating watercolor, background stamp on the main image. I used it to create designer paper for the larger base panel instead :O) I'm still honing my skills with this new technique, and I made a few mistakes on this one, but I think it turned out okay :]
I outlined the centers with a black marker to make them stand out. I was going to use glitter or opal pearls, but I really didn't want any fancy bling on this card after I added the distressing and the vintage photo ink. I'm still honing my skills on that technique as well :O) LOL
Supplies are listed in my SCS Gallery.
Hope you are enjoying a relaxing, creative weekend :O)
