Birthday Wishes - Double Trouble #162 "Spring Florals" partnering with Beautiful Blossoms

This is my Design Team project for Double Trouble "Spring Florals", partnering with Beautiful Blossoms Mood Board #15 "Anything Goes Floral", using a favorite floral image. Beautiful Blossoms Mood Board is an inspiration tool, but not a requirement however, must have flower(s)/floral(s). I also chose to used Twisted Sister's optional twist "include an Easter element and/or bonnets or baskets" with your floral, but this is not a requirement of our partner.    

I did a couple experiments masking the bunny in between the two florals and this was my final... others will go in my stash.  

My first inspiration was to use the bolder colors in the Mood Board; however with the itty-bitty bunny I felt a variety of Copic pastel colors would be perfect for the florals. There was a lot of detail in the floral stamping itself so I used a watercolor affect instead of blending as I wanted that detail to show. The sentiment curve balanced and filled in the white space and the glacier border was perfect for framing. 

On the insideright corner of card base another stamp and masking was done using the smaller floral and bunny colored lightly with pastel Copic markers. 

Please hop on over and join us at Double Trouble and Beautiful Blossoms to check out the Design Teams inspiration. Challenge yourself to add the optional twists and then let us see what you create... hope to see you there.
