Touches of Nature for FabFri93

Today I decided to play along with the folks over at Fab Friday.  They have a pretty sketch up for their challenge.  Take a look at my card:

And now take a look at the sketch:

Isn't my card pretty?  Here's how it came together:

  • Instead of the flourish that the sketch suggests, I went for a spray of flowers from Touches of Nature.
  • My color scheme was taken from the pretty DSP (Designer Series Paper).  It's from the Blooms and Bliss Paper Pack.  I pulled Mint Macaron and Island Indigo to use for my colors.
  • I used Mint Macaron to add "splotches" from Touches of Nature to make my background "spray".
  • I embossed my flower spray in black and then used a blender pen to add color to the flowers.
  • I embossed my sentiment from Happy Happenings in white on an Island Indigo piece of cardstock.
  • I added a piece of Mint Macaron Lace Trim (retired) to the back of the sentiment strip.
Tah Dah!  A super easy card done in about 10 minutes!

Happy stampin',


What a deal!

  1. Oh, how pretty! Love the colors. Your flowers turned out beautifully! Thanks for joining us at Fab Friday, hope to see you again soon!

  2. This turned lovely! I'm such a sucker for stem images - love the coloring you've done on these! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!

  3. I'm sad to say that Island Indigo is a neglected color in my stamp room and after seeing it paired up with Mint Macaron I can't think why? This is a really pretty combo and perfect for those delicate flowers. The lace and splatters are nice elements! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

  4. This is so beautiful, Robin! I love the blues and bit of bling you've added to the pretty floral spray. Thanks for joining us at Fab Friday, your card is a great take on the sketch!
