Pink and Orange Bloom

Last minute (35 minutes actually) decision. I wanted to do a
card from the inspiration photo on Muse Challenge #206
Isn't this card so beautiful. Of course I sat and procrastinated
all week over this thinking what stamp to use and yes it came
to me an hour ago. Black stamped image embossed, pinks and orange.
reversed my layers as I had stamped crooked so orange on white.

This brilliant stamp is from Stamplorations and I heat embossed the black
ink to finish it off perfectly. I stamped it crooked (!!) so had to cut out
once I had painted the colours. I went with light and bright pink and orange
and brown for centres.

Added to an orange layer from wonky stitch die square from MFT
and die cut 'beautiful' from Concord 9.

Need to post or will miss it, so thanks so much for coming to visit and please,
come again soon.
