The Challenge #57

So excited to be joining the talents over on The Challenge. I played along the other week and my card as picked at the winner of the sketch challenge. It's always an honor to be aknowledged. So I get to join the team and created this card for this week's Inspiration Challenge. 
I pulled out the pretty floral set, Love Blooms, by Reverse Confetti to  make some roses. I added a natural Stitched Flag Trio and stamped the "hello" greeting from Tweet Life. I finished off the sentiment with the Fancy Word die, cutting three of the friend dies and stacking them together. 


I loved the music note paper in the background. I was inspired by that and used one of the sentiments from Love Blooms to create my own scripty background. I started with clear embossing the sentiment over and over about 4 times. 



I then used some soft pink distress ink to make a color wash over the embossed words. I love the subtle effect this gives the card. It's a nice play on the vintage feel from the inspiration photo. 


Here is The Challenge graphic.






Here is a closer look at the Reverse Confetti products I used today. 









Have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by today.
