Those gorgeous pink flowers attracted me so I thought I'd use my two-step Greenhouse Garden flowers and go for a bit of emboss-resist. I stamped the solid flower first, then the line image in a darker shade of pink, before colouring the centres with my Certainly Celery marker. The flowers were covered in versamark using a versamark pen and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. This made them waterproof so I was able to sponge in a Crumb Cake background and add grasses which I stamped using the thin stem image in my Greenhouse Garden set.
The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs stamp set which is made up of sentiment pairs designed for stamping inside as well as outside cards.

Today, while we were having lunch, I complimented my husband on the coral jumper he was wearing and told him it was right on trend. Just then, the phone rang and he joked that it was probably Gok Wan calling. He disappeared into the hall and we heard him pick up the receiver and say "Hi Gok!" and then apologise to the caller and try to explain that he was only joking... What hope do my children have with this trace of madness in the gene pool?!
Thank you for coming to look at my card today. I'm looking forward to seeing how everyone else has been inspired by the challenge picture so I'll see you soon!
