Celebrate Your Day

 Here is another card I made for Joan's Touch (pink, white, lattice and flowers) challenge.

I had in mind what I wanted as the end result so I knew that I would need a 5x5" card base which I made in pink card stock.  Next, I cut 2 dies in white card stock from Marianne Creatables Anja's Squares, one of which had heart shaped lattice patterns around all four edges. I adhered these two die cut panels together using dimensionals and then adhered them to my base card.

I cut the flowers using Memory Box Bella Bouquet die. I cut these twice...once in white card stock and a second time in green. While still in the die, I colored the white flowers with Copic markers and then cut them off and discarded the white stems. Next, I paper pieced the white colored flowers onto the green cutout flowers which left me with a pretty bouquet of white and pink flowers on green stems. These were then adhered to the white latticed layer of my card.

I stamped my sentiment, from GKD Signs of Spring, on white card stock, cut it out with Spellbinders Beaded Ovals die and sponged it with Memento Angel Pink ink while still in the die. I added a ribbon to the flower stems and attached my sentiment on top of the ribbon. 

Hope you enjoyed this post. Thanks for stopping by!

Olga, that is so beautiful! I love the die and how you added those gorgeous pink flowers over the top. I can see I need to check out Memory Box dies again one of these days. Looks to be some amazingly lovely ones you are using.
