Flowers Say Hello

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a good day. I want to share a card I made using lots of flowers and distressed layers -- my favorite things in making a card! My inspiration came from this photo over on the Sizzix blog.

The Sizzix Challenge Inspiration

I love the magenta, pink and green combination. I used a Sizzix embossing folder on the background paper and highlighted the raised areas with green ink.

I used the Tim Holtz Alteration flowers dies by Sizzix to make my flowers. I added Champagne glitter, from Sparkle N Sprinkle, to the edges of the petals. The leaves are also from the leaves Sizzix die. I edged them with brown ink to make them stand out more.

I just bought this gorgeous Ornate Frame by Sizzix and was so happy to be able to use it right away! I added Copper Flame embossing powder to it by Sparkle N Sprinkle. I love the look it gives. I also added an acetate window over the saying to add a shiny look.

I had a fun time making this card! I am entering this card into the Sizzix  and Joan's Touch challenges.
Thanks you for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
