Card Set - Life is a Celebration

One of the blogs I follow regularly is that of Narelle Farrugia. She is a SU rep and I just love her style. These cards are CASEd from a set that she created not long ago. I used a different stamp for the flowers and a different embossing folder but the design is the same. 

The link to Narelle's cards is here if you want to check it out. 

I love the colour scheme of black, white and turquoise so I decided to go wth that. Lagoon is the CTMH colour that worked the best. 

The flowers and leaves were stamped and then coloured using watercolour pencils and a blending pen. This is not my preferred colouring method and I don't profess to be good at it either! However, I didn't want the bold colours that markers would have created so for the softer look, I used the pencils. 
The sentiments are all from the same stamps set - just varied the sayings a bit. Foam tape was used under the card fronts and on one embossed panel to add interest.
