Eastern Blooms Thanks

Dawn’s latest color challenge was a tough one! I combined her 15th Raspberry Suite color combo with the latest sketch challenge on SCS (SC243). I pulled Groovy Guava back out of retirement for this card; it was fun to use one of the old In Colors again!

In order to clear emboss the single flower, I inked up the stamp with VersaMark first, then with Groovy Guava Classic ink. The other images were inked up with markers for two different reasons: the branch to make it multi-colored, and the sentiment to omit the other words in the ‘thanks so much’ saying.

Thanks for stopping by!
