Thinking of 'Spring'

When I saw the beautiful Inspiration Palette over at
The House that Stamps Built I knew I had to play
and over at Dies R Us Challenge for their
Think Spring Challenge. Details Here
I did try and make a card with an envelope but
you know where that landed up. Just didn't work out right!
Starting off with that beautiful stamp from
Repeat Impressions - Vase of Tulips
(one of my favourites)
I heat embossed it with Zing Blush
and painted the flowers in the colours
on the palette. These are metallic paints I
picked up at an office supply store and they have
given me a new love of colouring in -
so easy to use I just use a water brush.
I was really happy how the vase tuned out motely
and in two colours.
This was cut from SB Romantic Rectangles
and popped onto white cs cut with a stitched die
stencilled with TCW Mini Hex Flowers
in Memento Angel Pink.
Sentiment is from 49ANDMarket heat embossed
and cut from vellum with SB Fancy Labels.
Added a couple of tiny pearls to finish.

#Also going to pop this over to
Hiding in my Craftroom for their
Challenge #189 Embossing
Thanks for dropping in today.
Love reading your comments.

Your card is absolutely stunning. I love the color you used for the embossing. It is more subtle than white would have been and adds to elegance of this card. Thanks for joining in the Hiding In My Craft Room embossing challenge. Beth DT
