Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 306

Hi there! Hope your weekend is going well! It's time for another lovely color challenge at Cupcake Inspirations! We have a pretty spring color palette for you this week.

This week's sponsor is The Stamping Boutique. I'm playing with the Plant Digital Stamp for my card today.

The DEEtails:

I printed the image twice and water colored the greenery and flowers with those Pearlescent watercolors. The stem is just a piece of Baked Brown Sugar Cardstock that I edged with a Basic Black marker and the pot was colored with a Baked Brown Sugar marker as well. I layered the two plant pieces to make a topiary and adhered it with some Stampin' Dimensionals to a piece of Something Borrowed Designer Series Paper that I had edged with my Stitched Line die. I matted it with some Wild Wasabi Designer Series Paper and adhered to a Sahara Sand card. The sentiment is from Best of Greetings and I stamped it on a little die cut banner. I actually die cut the banner twice and cut the center to layer to appear a little more realistic. Hope you like it!
