Yellow flowers

This card is for the Play Date Café challenge #122 and for the Hero Arts March challenge (flower theme). Here’s the PDCC inspiration board (gorgeous colours!):

 Here's my card:

First, the frame was stamped with Weather Wane ink and then the flower was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and clear embossed. I coloured it with Distress Inks (Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed) misted with water and Perfect Pearls. Old letter writing was stamped using second generation stamping with the Weather Wane ink. The trim was dyed using the same two yellow Distress Inks.

The Core’dinations cardbase was cut with a Sizzix On the Edge die, lining it up so that both sides are equal. Then it was embossed and sanded.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!
