The colors for today's challenge are perfect for florals, and since flowers are one of the dessert options, that's the direction I went.
After stamping & masking the dandelions, I sponged the 3 closest colors I had to the challenge & spritzed w/ a little water. I added a few white dots w/ a gel pen just to brighten them up a bit then I cut them out.
I die cut the flower heart, then sponged the same colors on the flowers, spritzed them then put it back in the die & embossed it again while damp. This is really thick card stock and it embosses so much better when damp. After I punched the vase, I also misted it & embossed it w/ the same die. The edge of the lighter pink c/s was punched, sponged a little & white dots added to the centers. When the card was all put together, I added the black Candi dot on the flag & a little Wink of Stella on the dandelions.
Thanks so much for looking! Closeups & the inside are on my blog: The Write Stuff

I knew this was your card before I even saw the name!! You just have such a way with colors, embossing and die cuts that is so above and beyond!!! Literally, every time I see a card I say to myself"how did she DO that!" This is just spectacular, so striking, it just jumps off the page! Absolutely amazing my friend and of course, a favorite!
