Blessings Today and Always

I'm very honoured to be Guest Designing for Color Throwdown this week with a beautiful happy swatch of colours.





This is what I came up with...





I used Newtons Nook Easter Lilies embossed in white, die cut then watercoloured.  The cluster of lilies on there own are quite small and compact but when grouped together they certainly fill a card, which proved a little tricky for placement.

Originally the card was vertical but for the life of me I couldn't make it work so I went horizontal and added a die cut frame with green splatters as a backdrop for the flowers.





The sentiment is from my favourite MFT Easter Bunnies set, embossed onto black cardstock, trimmed and mounted with 3D foam.

Placed a few cream coloured pearls around the card because I thought they looked pretty and added that little extra va-va-voom.

I hope the colours inspire you to play along :)

I love the sharp contrast of the split sentiment panels too - you really knocked this one out of the park! Beautiful card!
