Now for this weeks Simon Says: Red, White and/or Blue fitting for the date :)

These are colors that I do not often use, I love it when a challenge takes me way out of my comfort zone.



I started with my More Spring Flowers set and colored them with my Copics in reds and greys to mimic a white flower. I used the accompanying dies and decided on a navy background panel.


I wanted the background to have a little more life to is so I decided on the Simon Says Stamp Deco Diamonds 6x6 background stamp with some sparkle embossing powder. When I placed my flowers to the panel I decided I needed something to "ground" the flowers so I chose the Neat and Tangled Punchinella die and die cut a piece of Neena 80lbs cardstock. I really like the effect.


I put all of my elements together and opted for this great sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Spring Flower Burst set. I die cut the stitched banner by Pretty Pink Posh from some Tonic scarlet matt speciality paper and I white embossed the sentiment. To finish off I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins in a mix of sizes.  All of the products are linked and listed below!
