Summer blooms

Hello again. Have you visited Stamping Sensations blog already? If not, please do. Yesterday started fantastic challenge with fabulous prize. I'm so lucky to be a guest designer on their June challenge. I can't describe how happy I am for this opportunity. Thank you, Brenda, so much for the honor to be your guest designer. 
The theme for this months challenge is super easy: Summer Blooms.

I made a pocket card with some flowers. Flowers are die cut with Spellbinder Rose Creations dies. I inked them and also butterflies with TH Tattered Rose distress ink and spritzed with Tattered Angel Glimmer Mists: Coral Reef and Crushed Shells. Inside of the rose are made with MemoryBox Cherry Blossom dies and I colored them with Promarker (Buttercup). Flourish die cut is slightly inked with TH Pine Needles and Memento Pear Tart inks.

Pattern paper is from Prima Botanical collection. I inked the edges with TH Tea Dye distress ink. I made holes paper piercer and draw lines with white gel pen to mimic stitching. Spellbinder Label Four die cuts are inked with Tattered Rose distress ink. Inside of the card is a pocket.

Materials used:
Papers: Prima - Botanical Collectin A4 paper pad; White and cream papers from my stash
Inks: TH Distress Inks - Tea Dye, Tattered Rose, Pine Needle; Memento - Pear Dart
Coloring: Buttercup Promarker; Pergamano - White gel pen
Punches: MS - 3in1 butterflies
Dies: Spellbinder - Rose Creations, Radiant Rectangles, Label Four sm; Cheery Lynn Designs - Fanciful Flourish Right

  6. Hi, Eret! I am able to sit up for very short periods of time, so am visiting your blog today. Thank you, for your very sweet comments on my blog, and for letting me know I had won a prize on Digi Makeover! How exciting. Now, as for this card... I have pinned it more than once. What a GORGEOUS fold. I had not considered using the business size for a combination easel - gift card holder. Marvelous idea, and I will be using it for sure. Love the "v" in the front with the pretty flowers, and your lovely computer-generated sentiment. Not sure what it says LOL - but gorgeous like the card. Beautiful colors - so soft and serene. Thanks for thinking of me, and for sharing your wonderful artwork. hugs, de
