Freshly Made Sketches, I was ready to get to stamping.
Getting the layers together on this one took some time, I'm not going to lie. I think I tried every combination of colors in the layers until I decided that this was the keeper. Gah! Once I fussy-cut that flower, I knew I was committed to using this stamp set. I had to make it work! I really needed to get some Coastal Cabana on the main image somehow and decided to try sponging some ink on the background. I liked how it came out...I hope you do, too. Often, I think when you spend a lot of time on a card, you can sometimes convince yourself that something looks good...but it might not. So, I hope this was a good call. I sponged Calypso Coral ink around the flower and on the layer of DSP as well.
Of course, a card for Ann's challenge had to contain pearls...so I added 12 of the little buggers. I also added a little Glimmer Brad for a tiny pop of sparkle.
Here is a photo of the inside of the card, combining the flower from Fabulous Florets and stamps from the Happy Watercolor stamp set.
