Flower Bouquet for an Anniversary

Hey crafty friends - when my friend Rosemary (Hey There .... Rosigrl!) posted this beauty with a Hero Arts floral bouquet, I realized I hadn't shared the card I made on 8/15 with that image! Here's my version:

Supplies: Paper - Neenah white; Momenta watercolor print
Stamps - Hero Arts Togetherness Flower Bouquet &
Dies - A Jillian Vance Design Mini Slimline Backdrop Set;
Other - Copic Markers, foam tape

I made a mini slimline with white card stock then added a panel of rainbow blended patterned paper cut with an AJVD dot stitched rectangle. The black trellis layer came from my sister Diva Arlene (A Bit of This and That) - thanks again, Arlene!! I stamped, die cut & colored the bouquet with Copic Markers and added a few die cut leaves behind (from unknown - found in my bits box). My die cutting on the bouquet went a bit wonky so I trimmed the excess border on some areas. The sentiment comes from a 2010 Hero Arts set that continues to be available - it's in my "favorites" box in the crafty stash for all the occasions it covers. Love, love, love it!!

This card went to my dear friend-like-a-sister, Connie & her hubby who celebrated last Friday. I'd add it to Watercooler Wednesday but I've already hit the limit of 3 for their All Occasions Challenge which ends later today. But it does fit the current The Flower Challenge where I don't think I've played before. I see their sponsor is Rachel Vass who has sponsored us at Die Cut Divas - love her floral images!!

That's it for now - hope you have a crafty day!!

I love this one Linda, fabulous flower spray and lovely colours. Arlene sent me a couple of die cut pieces using that background die with my CCC card last month, so thanks for the idea on how to use them xx
