Eastern Bloom Holiday

This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE and I used the colors from Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE - Pretty Kiwi Breezes for my color combo. My focal image is stamped after being inked up with SU markers then huffed on white cs. I stamped the image again on pretty in pink and baja breeze and cut out a few of the flowers. I can not find any prima's small enough to go on this image. Shannon would have had a fit trying to cut these tiny flowers out. LOL. Anyway they are popped up and then I applied stickles. I stamped one of the flowers from the set onto kiwi kiss with kiwi kiss ink for panel 3, panel 2 is pretty in pink pattern paper. My base is white layered with baja breeze that I ran through the cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. My sentiment is stamped in baja breeze and is from All Holidays. I am giving this to a co-worker who is having a BD Saturday after I get it signed by her peers. She is always so grateful to get my handmade cards.

Gorgeous card! I love your color combo. You have said "spring" without saying "baby" (I tend to get those mixed up! Ha!). TFS!
