Daring Fantastical Sketch

Hello Everyone,

For tonight I am playing along with Daring Cardmakers, Sketch Saturday, and Fantasy Stampers Challenge Blogs. Three challenges, one card; let's see how I brought all of them together.. Here is my card for tonight, enjoy!

The aqua-green backdrop for the sentiment was made a year ago using the shaving cream technique. I can still smell the shaving cream. Check out the flex of blue! Perfect for this card!
The red flowers just pop off the aquamarine and white backdrop.
This color combination is just outstanding!!
Above: detail of the hexagons and flowers.
Below: You will see some of the shine I introduced. Shimmery seafoam green, lustery silver,
and shiny blue all come together to form a crisp backdrop for the whimsical flowers

Entering challenges:
Daring Cardmakers: Elementary Inspired (Color, Texture, Shine)
Sketch Saturday: Week #394 by Lesley
Fantasy Stampers: Challenge #53- Happy Birthday

  

It is my daughter's birthday in two weeks and I think this might be her birthday card. She is turning ten!! Incredible how time flies!! I know she loves the colors, because she saw me in the process of making it. I guess I better hide it for the time being. Thank you to all the blogs for the fantastic inspiration.

It is that time again to thank you so much for stopping by my little corner of the internet. I do appreciate your time you spend with TheGrandStampede. Until next time take care.

All the best,
Shawna
