Thanks a lot

Hi everyone! I had a few minutes yesterday afternoon and decided to play around with the following sketch and color combo from Crazy 4 Challenges.

The colors were really hard to match with just the right cardstock. It was a lesson in compromise, that's for sure. 

I die cut the flowers from cream cardstock and then colored them with a R81 and added strokes of highlights using R83 Copic's. Leaf die is from Memory Box.

All of the other dies are from MFT except the stitched scalloped border which is from Pretty Pink Posh and comes with three stitched borders in the pack. You can see it here.

Sentiment is from Verve. I added some stenciling onto the aqua banner using a stencil from Memory Box. I did end up adding some white embossing powder and heat setting it so that it would stand out. Then I added some graph detail using a background stamp from MFT.

OK, that's it for the day! We are off to the Beach!
Thanks for stopping by!
