Pretty in Pink

 Hey there. I had a request for a hot pink, floral retirement card. So... I got busy watercoloring a few panels in shades of pink and green. I did a bit of splatter with gold, metallic watercolors then let the panels dry.

Using the Altenew Fantasy Floral die I cut the rose and leaves from the watercolor panels. I also cut a tag from a metallic gold card stock, popped it up with a bit of foam tape and glued on the rose/leaf cluster.  I trimmed the final panel and adding a bit of washi tape in a metallic gold dot. Then heat embossed with gold detail powder to a strip of vellum using a Congratulations sentiment from Papertrey Ink. I tucked the vellum greeting in the leaves and secured to the background panel with tape on the back. After adding the pink baker's twine to the tag, I attached the panel to a white top-folding card base with more foam tape. My matching envelope was made with my score board from some double-sided scrapbook paper.


I will enter the card in the following challenges:
(Sparkle and Shine)
(Card and Envelope)
