I used the embossing folder stamping technique for the background; these colors were just perfect for it! (Sponging inks onto the inside front of your embossing folder, spritzing with water then laying a piece of watercolor paper down over the ink, pressing gently and randomly. Carefully remove paper and allow to dry). Your background is not actually embossed but you get the design of the folder. Love the look this gives!
The flower stamp is from the Mixed Bunch set, stamped in Perfect Plum onto Perfect Plum cardstock. I stamped a second flower center on Shimmer White, punched it to layer on the flower center then applied dots of Dazzling Diamonds onto the white dots. I stamped a portion of this flower again on a Wild Wasabi scrap and tucked it underneath the flower for leaves. The banner is also Shimmer White cardstock stamped with the sentiment then wrapped with that yummy Coastal Cabana Baker's Twine. This looks so perfect for spring and summer greetings!
