Petite Petals Anniversary

I started this card several weeks ago then got sick and wasn't able to complete it.  Yesterday I pulled it out and finished it.. yay!  Check one more thing off my catch-up to do list!

 I had begun this card using a color challenge combination of Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo and Smokey Slate but as I worked on it, I decided to add some Perfect Plum in for a little more contrast.  The small flowers are the fabulous Petite Petals set and Punch from the Spring/Occasions Catalog; I am using this pair so much... love it!  First I sponged ink onto Whisper White Cardstock then stamped the flowers with the same color ink and this method gave me lots of contrast in color tones.

The large flower is punched from a lovely Daffodil Delight print from the Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper pack using the Fancy Flower and Pansy Punches; the top flower is another stamp from the Petite Petals set.  I centered this flower with a Basic Pearl and added crystal Dazzling Details to the center of each petite flower.
