Play Date Cafe Challenge #43

Isn't the inspiration picture from the Play Date Cafe wonderful?  Especially at this hot time of year, I could just dive into it!

I'm still stuck on my rolled paper roses (this time I started with a die-cut scallop), so this is my take on this week's challenge:


The background and the flowers are made from a double-sided paper (TPC's Woodland Whimsey Mini-Dot) that has both the limeade color and the aqua/turquoise.  The paper I used for the scalloped circle that backs the roses also has the exact colors of the challenge in it; unfortunately, I have just bits and pieces left of it, so I can't identify it.  I got the darker green color from the challenge in by using the punched ferns and the ink for the sentiment. Here's a detail, showing the scalloped edges on the roses and the use of the double-sided paper for them:



Here and here are some tutorials for making these paper roses.

Supplies: Hero Arts CL341 Thank You Sayings, stamped in Versafine Olympia Green ink, limeade and dark green cardstocks, TPC Woodland Whimsey minidot designer paper, unknown designer paper,  nestabilities scalloped circle dies in 3 sizes, fern punch, limeade ribbon
