I am a total flower girl and I can’t begin to tell you how many hours I spent on coloring this card. I used the Pretty Peonies background stamp for this one that I stamped on the Strathmore Toned Gray Cardstock using Fog Dye ink and colored it in using Faber Castell Polychromos pencils.

I die cut Congratulations with white glitter cardstock and fun foam and stuck them together. The ‘Mr. & Mrs.’ from the Congratulations stamp set were stamped directly on the colored panel using Versafine Onyx Black ink.

I trimmed down the colored panel to be slightly smaller than A2 size and placed it using foam tape in landscape direction on a side folding A2 sized white card base.

I spent around 8 hours coloring this panel. Also, I didn’t embellish it with any sequin to keep the focus on the flowers. I hope you like this card.

So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!

You have until Wed 8 a.m. Ohio time, 1 p.m. UK time and 2 p.m. CET to join in.
