Paper Sweeties - May Inspiration

I was invited to be Guest Design for Paper Sweeties May Inspirational Challenge #55.  


Flowers, buttons, jars, books and watercoloring was my inspiration from this photo. I chose to go with flowers because this weekend had just purchased some background watercoloring design paper and thought that would be a nice blending for the flowers and hearts.  Also purchased a single sheet for the next Coffee Lovers BlogHop with "Tealightfuls" , 2" square sentiments, but the other side was perfect for my background paper.  


Did a lot of stamping and cutting and then put it altogether on the background paper curling edges and then adhering with 3D Thin Foam tape.  Added a few sequins and tried a raised sentiment but didn't like it so decided to stamp the sentiment right on the background...so out came my Misti for accuracy, placing and stamping until the sentiment was bold enough. Love my Misti.  

Photos below show the inside of the card with the same flowers, and the other photo is a close-up of the bouquet of flowers to show the dimension and curling of edges.

This is so sweet without being too "cutesy" - the flowers are different and I like that. Perfectly set on top of the heart doily. Lovely.
