Blue Blooms

Another quick post today. I'm putting my card in for two challenges

 Firstly, the colours are from
Color Throwdown, and
secondly, the sketch is from
Clean and Simple                                            
Here's my card

Some Lilac card was embossed and laid on a white base, and also used to make a die cut scallop circle in the Big Shot. A square of Apricot was matted off centre with a white topper stamped randomly with apricot and blue roses, onto which I placed the circles. Here is a closer view of the stamped white square.
I then arranged two large blue roses, two blue dog roses, and a blue rose bud, and leaves (Limeade over stamped with Wisteria) on the circle with the larger blooms raised on 3D pads. I added the sentiment also with 3D pads, and finished with the heart gems and pearls in the rose centres.

Supplies :
Card = Wisteria Wonder, Apricot appeal, Naturals White, and white base FMS
Stamps = Stippled Blossoms and Cute Companions sentiment
Inks = Wisteria Wonder, Apricot Appeal, Pool Party, Brilliant Blue, and Lucky Limeade
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, Budding Vine EF, and Stamp-a-ma-jig
Extras = 3D pads, Heart Gems, and Pearls

Mum's out of hospital, and things are a little easier now as she only lives a few streets away, so I have more time to myself. I hope to be crafting over the weekend, but it's my brother-in-laws birthday and a bank holiday so I may be too busy with family stuff. I hope you all have a good weekend whatever you are doing.

Thanks for dropping by
