I found Joan Ervin's SCS technique lovers' challenge from last week so inspiring! I couldn't wait to give it a try. I cut out the flowers with my dahlia nestabilities and an old cardboard box, then misted them with berry smooch spritz and iridescent gold glimmer mist. I set them aside to dry and it took a week for me to get back to them! I finally finished the card up this weekend.
After I made the flowers, I spotted the latest issue of Real Simple magazine in the grocery store and thought the colors on the cover (you can see a small version just to the left of the card) would make a fabulous color combination to go with my flowers. After I stamped the images and sentiment, I futzed and futzed with the flower placement, but I'm pretty happy with the final version!
