Puzzled Flowers

I had meant to have blogged before now, but while life happened, blogging didn't - I did get to spend some very special time with family recently, as well  helping Hubby with life - he is getting much more mobile now, and is confident on his crutches, which is a great improvement.  Hopefully he will be out of the moonboot in another two or three weeks.

This card was inspired by challenge #27 over at the Creative Craft Cottage blog.

I took three colours from the palette, and an older sketch from Stamplorations blog, and tried the technique that is currently very popular - cutting out a shape and then putting the shape back in, whether  you use the same cuts that have been coloured or different card.

The sentiment was stamped in Bamboo Shoot ink, and pink sequins placed near the flowers.

Centres in the flowers is gold liquid pearls over the yellow base card, and I also added some of the pearls in the centre of the sequins.

Green sequins were added over the washi tape,

and yellow near the corner on the white layer.
Overall, CAS card that I am very happy with.

You've definitely aced this inlay technique, and I loved the way you did the centers! So much dimension to this pretty flower. Love the papers, and the design. I was especially taken with the verse in today's sidebar. So appropriate in our world today. Everyone needs to read that, and understand it!!! So happy to hear Mr. is becoming more mobile. Those boots are NO FUN! I hope he's got some rehab therapy lined up for when he's out of the boot. Life happens, and is always more important than crafting & blogging. Everyone understands! Big Hugs & TFS
