Leaves And Flowers!




Hi everyone! A very leafy card to share today for the new Color Throwdown Challenge #431! The inspiration picture shows lots of succulents but I chose to feature my greens with gorgeous tropical leaves!



My daughter recently showed me a wedding invitation she was designing for a couple and I was immediately inspired to create a card from that design! I die cut the tropical leaves from two different shades of green and then stamped in the images for more detail. After they were layered over a kraft background, I added in some Crystal Stickles for pretty shine!


I topped off the leaves with a circle die, adding in the plum color of the challenge. The sentiment is also stamped in plum. I added in a few small plum flowers and gave them some sparkly gold centers (because...gold!). I embellished the inside of the card too but left it blank so I can use it for either a birthday or perhaps a Thank You!



Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!!

Supplies Used:
My Mind's Eye 'Charmed' enamel dots
