Bud Vases

Hello all!
Entering Challenge
Well today we have sun but it is still 1 degree. It is just so funny to me to say that it is one outside.


Anywhoo, the card for today features the Lotus Blossom by Stampin' Up and two wooden bud vase by KaiserCraft.

The colors were inspired by The Color Throwdown #330 challenge which reminded me of spring. Cheery greens, subtle orange, and crisp white just love it! Here we are and let me know what you think?

Card Size: A2- 4.25" x 5.5"
This is showing how the border of the card is mounted
on the back panel.
These wooden embellishments coordinate
perfectly with the challenge colors.
Added just a little sparkle on the flowers.
As you can see this card is different due to how it is mounted. I decided the border of the card should be on its back panel. I love the design because it is not what you would usually expect when opening up a card.

The lotus blossoms were stamped on vellum with chalk white and subtle orange with a touch of sparkle added to the leaves. The vases are really what inspired the design. I gives it depth without giving it bulk. The wavy lines on the patterned paper I think go very will with the shape of the blossoms.  The dark green makes an optimal accent color both on the stems and the border.
The sentiment from Technique Tuesday is very fitting and cheery. Added and paper button, tied some ribbon, and added the sentiment to finish it off.

Well that is all for today... Tomorrow I am hoping to post a very humorous card.. Until then, take care and thank you for stopping by!

All the best,
Shawna
