Cute Card Thursday - Flower Power

Happy Thursday!

This week at Cute Card Thursday, our challenge is Flower Power. 


Stamp: Tilda Spreads Love
Paper: Basic Grey
Ink: Staz-On, Distress Ink
Accessories: Lace, Pearls, Liquid Pearls, Stickles, Flowers, Leaves and Branch punches.


I colored the image with Distress Ink. I used Stickles for the hearts and flowers and Liquid Pearls to embellish the edges of the image. 


I had a pretty red heart doily in my stash, but the red was a bit intense. I used pink acrylic paint and my white pearl paint dauber to lighten the heart to a nice soft pink.

I am entering this card in the following challenges...

Simply Magnolia - Red and/or Pink with White
Magnolia Down Under - One Word Sentiments
Just Magnolia - Pink, Pearls and Lace
Basic Grey Challenge - Love and Valentine
