Here is my third card for today, all being in different challenges. We have had some really windy past days, my pools are a mess so I thought since I have some extra time on my day off I'd make some extra cards in case I have to work too late the next couple of days.
For this one, I did the two step stamping technique which I really haven't tried that many times. Works great for the color challenge. I stamped my flowers and leaves, made a vase for them by cutting out an oval and trimming off the top and bottom. I then scored some lines and sponged on the color. Learned this from Michelle Zindorff awhile back.
Cut out my image, using a long oval coluzzle. Made a oval frame out of riding hood red. Stamped mutnik diamonds around it and put it on my image.
On pink pirouette cs, I put an oval mask down then two stepped the flowers around the edges. Cut out one side closely, the other side just rounded the corners and did some faux stitching.
On a white card, I used a ripped piece of paper as a guide, them sponged the stripes on the card. Added the white dots on two corners with acrylic paint and a stylus.
Put all this together on the striped card popping up the main image panel.
Well there you have it, please check out my gallery for the other two cards, and remember any and all comments are so appreciated..........TFL :0)

Wow, love the background! Really great job on the whole card. I liked reading about how you did everything. I liked the striped/sponged vase. Really beautiful card. I like the half piece of paper behind with faux stitching.
