Tiddly Inks Challenge: Bloomin' Beautiful

Hi! A new challenge begins today over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog. We want to see cards and projects that are Bloomin' Beautiful. I'm using the flower border that comes with the Bugs & Kisses digital image.

I colored the flowers and ladybugs with Copics and then fussy cut the top section. I trimmed the edges, using my stitched rectangle die.

The sentiment was stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed in white on black cardstock, die cut into a banner, and secured to a strip of that beautiful rainbow plaid cardstock. Then, that piece is popped up (x2) with foam tape. To finish off the card front, I added a black satin ribbon and rainbow Stickles to the flowers.

For the inside, I added a white stitched frame and a thinner rainbow frame. I used my Zig markers - direct to paper - to create the mini rainbow frame and then coated it heavily with my sparkle pen. I left the inside black, thinking I could use my white gel pen to write a lovely note to the recipient.

Now it's your turn! Link up your Bloomin' Beautiful projects for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the Tiddly Inks shop. If you need more design team inspiration, you can also see what my teammates have been up to this week.

Thanks for stopping by!
