Pretty Vellum Flowers

This card is for Inkspirational's Challenge #25 to CASE the card in the photo below and for Make It Monday's Challenge  #121 to use coloured vellum flowers. As the flowers I used were quite intricate, it took forever to ink them up using a cotton bud like Betsy did in the video, so I squished them into the ink pad instead and got a more intense colour but not overly intense either. Love how this card came out, even though it's so not me at all.


And here's my card...


Recipe:

Stamps: Delightful Dahlias from Papertrey Ink

Papers: Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze, Whisper White all from Stampin' Up

Inks: Pretty in Pink, Baja Breeze both from Stampin' Up

Accessories: Delightful Dahlias Dies from Papertrey Ink, Swirls Embossing Folder from Crafts Too, Pearls from Hobbycraft
