Elegant Flower

I made this card for the Color Challenge on SCS. We were to use: Certainly Celery, Orchid Oplulence, and Pumpkin Pie. Now that was a challenge!! WOW!! Here's what I came up with.

I love this Hero Arts flower!! I would normally dirty it up a bit, but I didn't feel it would lend itself very well with this particular color combo, so I *prettied* it up instead with a lot of sparkle and bling. I'm a huge fan of the Penny Black Stamp - Scrolling Along, that I used on the bg too. It has very fine and gorgeous swirls, hearts and teeny flowers. So many possibilities!! LOVE IT!!

I colored the flower with SU markers of the challenge colors and added ultrafine glitter with my Quickie glue pen. The tiny rhinestones are by Hero Arts too. The bg was stamped with Versamark and colored with my Sakura White Souffle pen, and ultrafine glitter. I blinged up the sentiment the same way. The scallops were made with my SU slit punch. The sentiment comes with a bunch of awesome clear stamps by Hero Arts. Love them too. They have all different fonts, and a few little extras that come in handy when embellishing. That's about it.
