Happy Watercolor

WOW, it's been a long time since I posted anything.  I had some heath issues to take care of and boy does it feel good to be back in the stampin room. 

Each month my upline, Frenchie, has a challenge for us on the team facebook page.  This month was a color challenge of Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Pear Pizzaz and Pool Party.  I love this new stamp set found in the Occasions Catalog called Happy Watercolor.  My card base is 4 1/4 X 11 scored at 5 1/2.  My next layer is a piece from the Fresh Prints dsp paper stack.  I then used Pear Pizzaz and embossed it with Arrows embossing folder.  On my top layer I used the larger background stamp with Crumb Cake, Pool Party and Pear Pizzaz.  I did stamp off on each color so that my background did not over power my flower images.  I stamped the flower in Early Espresso, stamping 3 times with only inking the stamp once.  I then stamped the flower on a piece of Whisper White with Early Espresso and then colored it with my Pool Party marker.  I cut it out and attached with a dimensional.  A little crumb cake ribbon and my greeting cut with the new Banners Framelits.  I used the 2 smallest ones.  I stamped the greeting in Pool Party and sponged the edges with Pear Pizzaz.  I added a couple of pearls and some dazzling details to finish it off.
