Berry Sorbet Flowers

Hi everyone!  Today's card was inspired by this week's OWH Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge #33.  I love this sketch because the layers are off center which I wouldn't think to do on my own.
My card base is Berry Sorbet layered with a slightly smaller piece of PTI White then Kiwi Kiss cardstock.  I seem to make all my card bases with three layers of cardstock lately, hmmm! The shadow layeres are Berry Sorbet and Emma patterned paper. 

The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI White using the Angels In A Vase stamp and colored in using copic markers.  I paper pierced the edges then layered the image on to a slightly larger piece of Berry Sorbet before attaching to the card base with mounting tape.  To embellish the card I added a bow and two large gems.

Hope you have a beautiful day!

  • Stamps: Angels In A Vase (Hero Arts)

Love this color combo! I don't use pink very often, but when paired with this green it looks awesome! It's such a cheerful card!
