A Beautiful Bunch Birthday

Okay, I have to say a big YUCK on this one.  It went in a totally different direction than I had in my head.  They all can't be winners now, can they???

For this interesting card I stamped the large flower from the "Beautiful Bunch" set using Hello Honey ink.  I used a blender pen and removed the ink from the center.  I colored in some of the new Tangelo Twist.  Then I colored in the center are using Blackberry Bliss.  

The center of the flower was stamped using Blackberry Bliss and then I colored over it with the Hello Honey marker.  I set it in place using a Dimensional.  

I stamped a couple of flowers from the "Petite Petals" set using Blackberry Bliss ink.  I punched them out and then I colored them using the Hello Honey marker.  It just kept getting worse as I was trying to make it pretty!!! LOL

I stamped the  "Flowering Flourishes" image using Wild Wasabi ink.  I set the flowers in place using Dimensionals.  Nothing was helping.  I stamped the words from the "Wetlands" set using Blackberry Bliss.  I layered the piece on some Blackberry Bliss card stock.  What a train wreck!!!  I promise I will have a prettier card for you tomorrow.  I even added some pearls to the center of the tiny flowers.  I just don't know when to walk away!  It did not help!!!  LOL

Thank you SO much for taking a look at this mess today!

I think the only thing that might make this card "prettier" in your eyes would be to use a smaller flower. The big one just seems to overwhelm the rest of the card. I have only recently discovered your blog Audi love your style. Thanks for your daily inspiration.

The balance of flourishes and flowers are so pretty.

I can see myself using this layout with pastel favorites unless you include fall and Christmas colors.

TY for sharing.

I think if you stamp/color/punch another of the big flowers and offset it onto the other big flower is will look like a giant sunflower. Maybe this would help??? I like the design and colors!

Thank you for sharing even when it doesn't turn out to be the "best".
