Pink and green

...one of my favorite color combinations.  I made this card for the CASE study challenge #6, based on a gorgeous card by the monthly muse, Mariana Grigsby:


I love this little stamp, that looks to me like apple blossoms, and so I was so glad to pull it out and use it again.  It was stamped twice on the oval diecut, and once again to cut and pop over the top.  I colored it with Prisma watercolor pencils and added some pearls.  For my background I used the Victoria embossing folder on a pretty sage green cardstock, and the bottom panel is an old hoarded Frances Meyer designer paper.  That was first lined with a peachy pink cardstock punched on one edge with a Fiskar's lacy punch.  I used a dotted pink sheer ribbon and a Hero Arts sentiment to finish. 

Supplies: white, pink, green cardstocks, Frances Meyer "Wedding Stripes" designer paper, Stampendous H120 Charity Blossom, Hero Arts CL131 SparkleClear Messages, Fiskars punch, pink dotted organza ribbon, pink pearls
