Pink Amaryllis

Good Morning! 

Today Great Impressions is sponsoring the Challenge at House Of Cards.  They have supplied us with a beautiful photo for inspiration!

I drew my inspiration from all of those beautiful shades of pink, pretty flowers in the background and all of those glittery gold accents....oh plus the Kraft box, so rustic!

I created the box using an SVG Cut File....found a FREE one online!

I used the beautiful Great Impressions stamp, E853 Amaryllis.  Perfect to showcase this time of year!  I decided to paper piece the gorgeous blooms, images colored with Copic Markers.  Spellbinders Ornate Squares and Stitched Traditional Tag dies used.  I found this gold sparkly tape by Michael's Recollections Brand in my stash, it is sooooooooooo sparkly!  I cut the tag out in Kraft which is also layered beneath the pink card stock die cut.  Added a few iridescent sequins and colored some seam binding ribbon with a pretty shade of pink Copic Marker (so easy to have any color ribbon you choose, plus it always lends a vintage look).  Swiss Dots Embossing Folder for texture.
Don't forget to check out the Challenge at House Of Cards.
Thanks so much for popping in, appreciate you doing so!
