Thinking of You: BTF #40A/B, Heart 2 Heart "Hello Lovely", and Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies Challenges.

Hi again.  I am here now with my second card for the day.  This one I used several challenges for inspiration.  First, I knew I would be using the "Hello Lovely" paper collection from CTMH and two of the challenges are to use this collection.  One is Between The Folds (BTF) #40 A/B and it's is found here.  

The other challenge is the Heart 2 Heart Challenge for February to use "Hello Lovely" and it's found here.  Heart 2 Heart Challenges

The third challenge I am entering is the Happy Little Stampers "Anything Goes with Dies" challenge for February.  You can find the challenge here.  

So on with the card.  I started with a white A2 card base.  I then cut a large piece of patterned paper from the "Hello Lovely" collection from CTMH at 4" x 5 1/4".  I then cut a piece of white daisy cardstock at 3 3/4" x 4" and I stamped the floral image from the CTMH stamp and die set called "Hello Lovely Cardmaking Bundle" with Versamark ink.  I then used gold embossing powder(CTMH) and heat embossed the image.  I then colored the flowers with colored pencils from Prima and CTMH.  I then covered the main flowers with glue and sprinkled CTMH Prisma Glitter on top. (Sadly, Prisma glitter has been discontinued by CTMH but I bought a bunch for my stash!)  Next, I got my piece of patterned paper that I cut earlier and I die cut the floral image from it.  I am just using the negative piece for this card.  Before attaching the paper to the card I wrapped some Blush Shimmer ribbon (CTMH) around the edges and attached on the back with my tape runner.  I then attached my colored floral piece to the top of my card.  I then lined up the hole left from die cutting the patterned paper over the floral stamped piece.  I used pop dots to add the patterned paper so that there is more visual interest.  I next stamped a banner from the same stamp/die set with Versamark and then gold embossed it same as the floral image.  I stamped the greeting with second generation Sorbet ink (CTMH).  I centered this banner on top of the ribbon and attached with glue tape.  Lastly, I added some rose gold sequins from CTMH.  And there you have it.  
Thanks for popping by,

My, what a beautiful the gold embossing on the floral and all the sparkles against the background paper...and topping it off with that lovely ribbon. Thanks for sharing with us at Heart2Heart, very inspiring.
