Double Trouble 86 - Floral Cluster

Welcome to Double Trouble Challenge 86!

The small graphic for this challenge is below - please check the Double Trouble Challenge Blog for additional information. 

I decided to create a birthday card - after all, that is a celebration! Our partner challenge this week is If You Give a Crafter a Cookie challenge and their inspiration photo is shown above. I used a layering daisy stamp set and created a cluster of flowers in the corner. I used the corner of a mandala stencil to create a little interest by mixing texture paste with some drops of clear shimmer and applying that to the lower right corner of the card. I also splattered the front with the Gold Shimmer Brush. After the flowers were adhered, I added a few dots around the blooms using Antique Gold Liquid Pearls. The sentiment was masked and stamped in both black and versamark and then heat embossed.

Come and join us at Double Trouble and show us how you interpret this challenge.
