Une fleur parmi les fleurs…

Capture d_écran 2017-06-22 à 15.57.07Capture d_écran 2017-05-13 à 21.20.11This one layer card was the inspiration from 3 challenges: TIME OUT Challenge #86 #Celebrations (one layer option) + Color Throwdown #448 colour palette of purple, mint green, hot pink and teal, and finally Freshly Made Sketches #293
with Karren‘s sketch!Capture d_écran 2017-06-22 à 15.57.20

Using the Penny Black stamp “gentle whisper” I proceeded by using the purple for the stamen, teal for the contour, hot pink for the petals and mint green for the stems.  I stamped this orchid onto a 110lb white folded card base by mimicking Karren’s curve in her sketch.  The flower was then clear heat embossed to give it some shine.  The sentiment ” Une fleur parmi les fleurs” (A flower amongst flowers) was heat embossed in mint green, in celebration of a very special friend!  Thanks so much for stopping by, HUGz, JoannaIMG_1914
