PPA130 and Elements of Style

This is my creation for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge this week. I really love, but have been neglecting, my Elements of Style Stamp Set. It looks so beautiful stamped on Watercolor Paper and colored in with Ink Pads and an Aqua Painter.

This PPA challenge is a fun one, a color challenge with a twist. "This challenge has a twist to allow you to show your own creativy and style.  Just use Lucky Limeade, Always Artichoke (or similar colors) and add a color of your choice."  I originally had thoughts of making a St. Patrick's Day card as that would have been the logical choice. Instead, I added several shades of yellow for this romantic card.

I added some Dazzling Details to the centers of the flowers for some subtle sparkle, though it was hard to get a picture that shows this off. The hummingbird was cut out and popped up with a couple of Dimensionals.
