Sympathy Watercolors {PPA92 Color Challenge}

Happy Mother's Day!
Just quick post today to play along with the Pals Paper Arts color challenge. OOOhhh Love these colors too.
This is actually a card we will be making in my next class on Wednesday. It's pretty simple to assemble too. Here's my card.
I started with pale blushing bride card base and used a double round corner punch to soften the edges.
Then I used VersaMark and stamped the images from Fifth Avenue Floral on vellum and covered in clear embossing powder. I colored the flowers using daubers  and inks in blushing bride, poppy parade, peach parfait and did the same with pear pizzazz on the swirls.
Then I used brilliance white pigment ink and white embossing powder on the sentiment.
Next I folded a piece of scrap pear pizzaz ribbon in half and punched a 1/16" hole and added a pale pink corduroy button to secure the vellum to the card front. I also added one tiny glue dot to bottom right lower front to keep the vellum in place.
I repeated the process on the inside but this time I used whisper white cs. I really like how it turned out and think it gives a soft pretty look.

Hootie says " Hoot Hoot Hooray...Thanks for stopping by today! Please leave a comment with your thoughts; I hope you will stop by again!"

Di, this is GORGEOUS! Love the sponging and embossing on vellum! Gives everything such a soft and pretty look, perfect for the sentiment on the inside which is just as beautiful as the front. Wonderful job!
