Fall Flowers - Belli #19 & SC177

Here's a multipurpose card that I made on Monday night. Despite the MANY problems I managed to encounter while creating it, I'm fairly happy with the end result. This is one of my May cards for the Firecracker Designs by Pamela design team - I had the set "Fall Flowers". I also incorporated Sketch Challenge SC177 from Splitcoast, and this week's Belli Challenge #19 - to use the white gel pen. That's no trouble since I LOVE the white gel pen!

A quick overview - I stamped the image in Palette Burnt Umber on the Nana's Nursery - Baby Girl paper from DCWV. Then I stamped it in Palette New Canvas on the Burgundy cardstock. Cut out the blossom image and layered it over. I didn't think the New Canvas ink was opaque enough, so I went over it with the white gel pen {the one from Stampin' Up!}. Then I doodled around the edge with the white gel pen, and I just couldn't stop - LOL - so I added the little faux-cross stitch "x"s. The colors are white, Blush Blossom, Groovy Guava, and Bravo Burgundy.

11 people made my day!:
