Thoughtful Flowers Card

I came across this pretty card on Pinterest this morning and immediately wanted to see if I could make a version of it. I had the Hero Arts cling Garden Bouquet stamp, but I didn't have the Distress Inks. That's okay, I had some new to me Close To My Heart ink pads that I felt would work instead. Here's my version of the card:

The colors from top to bottom are: Creme Brulee, Sunset, Smoothie, and Pear. I just sponged the colors onto the one inch strips I cut after I heat embossed the image with white. Then I adhered the strips to a scrap piece of paper and foam dotted that piece to the card base. The sentiment is from a Hero Art clear stamp set about friendship. It doesn't have a name on the packaging. Looking at it now, though, I might have to change it because it doesn't really make sense now that I see it this way!

Thanks so much for stopping by. 
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Ooooooh those colors are just beautiful!! So springy and lovely! Reminds me of sherbet! I love the way you layered the colored panels and stamped the floral stamp on top! You did a stunning job on this Jeanne! So happy you've had time to play! :)

This is very pretty! I forget how nice it looks to simply heat emboss an image and then sponge color around it. I love this card!!

Beautiful job recreating this stunner, Jeanne! The colors you used are so spring-like and happy. (Is the new-to-me CTMH color Pear anything like Sweet Leaf?)

hugs to you,
