Flower inspiration

Happy Wednesday!!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a GORGEOUS inspiration photo for you.  You can choose to be inspired by the colors, or the image, or both (as I was)!  Here it is:
Image may contain: flower
Aren't those colors so yummy!!!??  As soon as I saw this photo, I KNEW what stamps I was going to use.  Obviously, my favorite Flower Power Separates would be the perfect fit (and I do so love using them).  Here's the card I created:
I love how the white flowers in the photo really pop, so I heat embossed all of my images with white embossing powder before coloring them and fussy cutting them out.  Then I layered them all together  to (sort of) imitate the clusters in the photo.  My frame is backed with vellum and then some patterned paper, the vellum softens the color and pattern so it doesn't take away from the beautiful flowers.
     I hope you will get inky and play along with us; I can't wait to see how this photo inspires you!
And if you haven't bought these flowers yet, check out my 10% off your ENTIRE order coupon on my left sidebar.  I use them all the time!

Stunning. The colors are so beautiful, and the white embossing is so refreshing. I love the idea of backing the frame with vellum, and the pearls complete this gorgeous card.

Thank you for joining us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week!
