A teal and orange thank you

Happy Saturday!  
I wanted to make a card for the Fusion challenge, Teal, Orange and Brown and this is what resulted.
I masked off a section of my PTI Vintage Cream CS with micropore tape and sponged on some PTI Tropical Teal, then used the same little ferns from MFT that I created with yesterday and inked up in SU Baked Brown Sugar, stamped off on a scrap piece of paper and then onto the sponged teal strip repeatedly.
I then went hunting for a strip of PP for my horizontal panel, this is a strip from an old DCWV Naturals pad.  I then used an umbrella die cut from Memory Box and cut out of a teal linen textured CS, cut it up, selecting the center part of the umbrella and inverted.  Now I had my "bowl" to set some flowers in.  I drew some thin stems and added my flower tops.  They are punched out of some old PP from an 8 X 8 pad DCWV again called Cafe Mediterranean.  I added 3 seed beads in a gorgeous teal colour to the centers.  My sentiment is a SU stamped in Baked Brown Sugar, full strength this time onto a punched 
1 3/8" circle that I sponged with the teal ink.
Looking at this beautiful inspiration photo now on the screen, I wish that I had incorporated some woodgrain...
Have a great Saturday!

  6. I wish that I had incorporated some woodgrain... But you couldn't because you gave me the wood grained embossing folders (Sorry)! But the card is beautiful as it is.
