SC115 came along just in time to use my new Looks Like Spring set! I've been wanting this set since I saw it & was inspired for this color scheme by a tissue box (see background of pic).
I first stamped the lt blue panel, which was the part inspired by the tissue box. The big flower was stamped in Whisper White craft ink & Ballet Blue classic ink. Orchid Opulence ink was sponged lightly in the open areas between the flowers. The panel was pierced around the edges & a white grosgrain ribbon tied around. I left the edges frayed as the look is kinda rugged.
The little "friend" panel was stamped with Night of Navy ink on white cardstock. The image was outlined with a dark Sakura Stardust pen & mounted on navy c/s. It is popped up.
The big main flower was stamped with craft white ink on navy c/s. It was cut out (phew!) & an extra large gray-blue snap was added to the center. It is also popped up.
The bottom of the card base was stamped with craft white on med blue Bazzil c/s. The top was pierced around the edges & highlighted with the dark Sakura Stardust pen again.
The middle patterned paper is by Creative Memories.

Wow! This took you a lot of time and I can totally appreciate all the details. It is just beautiful! Funny that you were inspired by a tissue box because I bought a huge variety pack of those smaller boxes recently and thought about how totally inspiring some of them were... I have yet to do anything about it, but wouldn't that be a funny challenge... "use your tissue box as inspiration!" LOL
