Flower Note

Flower Note cu 05864
I made this for today’s Color Challenge (CC521) on Splitcoast. The colors are Lagoon, Pear, Daffodil & Strawberry with the dessert option of using some kind of flowers (other than stamped). So I’m in for the dessert this time. As usual, since the colors are SU and I don’t have them, I subbed using Distress Inks that are very close.

For my background, I’m using one image from the Retro Starburst Cling Set. Check them out, they are really fun! Using a piece of paper cut to size & a die cut circle piece, I determined where on the card front I wanted my image to be. When I had that worked out, I die cut the top panel w/ the Spellbinders pierced rectangle then used a circle & a pierced circle die to cut my circles. I stamped the retro line circle inside each cut out using the 3 Distress inks. The greeting was a little too long, so I masked part of it out and rearranged the rest.  Then I die cut & punched all my flower parts, sponged some w/ ink, put them all together and attached to my card. 

I used a little frame and a leftover flower on the inside.
