Fast & Fabulous ColorQ

Tonight I played along with the weekly challenge over at ColorQ! Fun fun!! This card is dedicated to my dear friend Lisa who's birthday is today-know that I'm thinking of you and wish you weren't so far away!!

OK, here is the challenge photo with colors:


And here is what I came up with!


Hadn't used the Fast & Fabulous set for awhile, and blue flowers sounded like fun! All the blues are in there, but maybe not obviously! Card base is Night of Navy, background accent layer Soft Suede. I stamped the outline images first with the Soft Suede on the Whisper White. Then I did the small flower first, inking with Marina Mist and rolling the edge in Pacific Point. The large flower is Marina Mist rolled with Night of Navy, and the tall flowers are Pacific Point with Night of Navy. I sponged the edge of the Whisper White twice, once in Marina Mist more heave so that more color went onto the White, then again with Navy right at the edge for accent. The saying from Sincere Salutations was stamped in Soft Suede on Whisper White and punched with the Large Oval, then layered on a Navy scallop oval. I lightly stamped the small flower over the words. A satin ribbon in Night of Navy is tied across the bottom. It needed just a little something more, so I grabbed some glitter from the Fine Galaxy stack, Champagne I think, and added it to the center of flowers. Now, it's done!!
