Summer Lovin'

SummerLovinChallengeLast minute entry for the Flourishes Summer Lovin' challenge with the prize being the new release.  I love pink & green so that was the inspiration I took from the picture.  This sweet image from Flourishes Botanical Bookplates was stamped & embossed in white & then sponged with pink & green inks.  I brushed Shimmer Spritz Frost onto the flowers giving them a lovely sheen.  The dies are Spellbinders.  Thanks for stopping by--I love reading your comments.

I love pink and green together too Greta. I love the round card, and the embossing and sponging. This card is so pretty, and will make me think of spring as I watch the snow fall outside my window today.

I love circle cards! Probably because I can't really make them easily myself ;-). You rocked the color inspiration on this project. I love that gorgeous flower image embossed in white!
