I got out matching inks to the photo colour inspiration and then I went through my Simon Says Stamp stamps to work out which ones I haven't used much. These large blossom are actually Succulents from the Greeting and Succulent stamp set but they look pretty good as flowers to me.
I stamped with Versamark and then used WOW white embossing powder, I do think they are the best white I have tried.
Then using Ranger Blending tools I blended some colour to match the inspiration trouble was I was pleased with the finished result and couldn't cut the background I made so I used it all. Has you can see I also stamped some single ones with the intention to used the matching Dies, but because I had blended over the edges I knew there wouldn't be a nice white border so I just cut round them instead.
It only seem right to use the Penny Black Flourish die that had been lingering on my desk waiting to be used, its quite fiddly to layer another layer but I think its worth it in the end. All finished with a fishtail banner using a Simon Say Stamp Birthday Messages stamp set.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the fabulous comments on my previous Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Crazy Birds card.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

  25. I adore these colours, and the succulent stamp does look like a flower, to me it seems like a Dahlia. I love the extra flowers and the pretty flourish sitting on the panel is perfect. x
