Fabulous Florets and Two Challenges

I reached for the Fabulous Florets Stamp Set once again to make this thank you card that was inspired by one of my fellow Stampin Up demonstrators, Judy. 

The sketch is from a challenge I am playing along with for the first time this week, the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge. Check it out; so many beautiful projects were made using this sketch.

The color scheme is from the Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge. I really like this color combination. I find blues and greens so easy to work with.

The blue flowers were stamped with Island Indigo Ink, and then colored in a little with an Aqua Painter. I used a sponge dauber to add a dab of So Saffron ink to the centers. The white background was sponged on the edges and then spritzed in Wild Wasabi.

Very cute use of the doily for one of the layers and I really like how you colored your flowers with just a tint of color. Thanks for playing with us this week at Create with Connie & Mary!

Sandy, this is lovely! The set you have used this with and the way you colored it really helped to mute the colors. Thanks for playing the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge this week!
