The Flower Challenge #6 Anything Goes

It's time for another challenge. This month the challenge is one of
my favourites: Anything Goes. As long as the main feature of the card
is a flower. Please remember it is a Flower Challenge, other than
that any colour, style, design, idea its up to you.

I have used one of the stamps from a set from Penny Black
Check it out, love these sets with a variety of stamps and got it
from a destash page on Facebook 1/2 price never used - wahoo.

I coloured with copics, added a bit of sparkle on some of the petals and
the water.  Die cut a frame (MFT die) then put it back in place, taped behind
with masking tape so I could do some ombre blending, Worn Lipstick, Spun sugar
going to white. Splashed on a bit of water.

The card base is covered in a 'V' pattern washi tape that is probably twice as
wide as the most commonly used and is a rose gold. I put it on the card base
and matched the 'V' so it looks zig zig, not that you can see much but I like the look
behind the pink frame. A few rose gold gems and die cut 'Happy Birthday'.

I used this amazing tape to attach the die cut, no glue, no fiddling but I'll tell you about
that next post and share a picture of what I used. Made attaching my die cut words so easy as usually I have smears I have to hide or try and clear off.

Now you need to go check out The Flower Challenge
and see the amazing cards made by the rest of the Design Team.
There is so much talent and inspiration there, you can click on
any of the Design Teams names to be taken to their post for more information.
The Challenge goes till the 25th March so plenty of time to enter a card or two.

Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.

Gorgeous. You know if you didn't tell us about the smears we wouldn't know! :) I'll keep an eye out for that tape! And I don't want to know about the destashing site you have visited.

Oh my friend, what a gorgeous card, your design is spot on to frame this amazing image, perfectly colored as always.
You used two of my favorite shades of pink Distress Inks, love the Ombre effect of this frame, the golden details and the perfect, golden die cut sentiment.
I also need to see that tape, I often struggle with attaching thin sentiments, I quite often, make a mess.
