Pretty Flowers! Spring? Flowers - let's hope so!

I'm back today with a sympathy card.  We've had quite a few friends and relatives that have lost loved ones here recently, and so I went on a spree of creating sympathy cards today.  

I must say, I love the way this one turned out.  

I had a couple of 4x4 pieces of Pool Party already cut and laying on my desk, so decided to do something with them.  I grabbed my new set - So Very Grateful and decided to use the floral image for this card, by heat embossing it with White Embossing Powder.  Then I took several markers to color in the image - Strawberry Slush, Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, Daffodil Delight, and Pear Pizzazz.  

Then, I decided that the Pool Party piece needed to be backed up with something - so choose Basic Gray, in 4 x 5-1/4" - that meant I needed to trim down my Pool Party piece slightly - just a 1/8".  I added a bit of Strawberry Slush Ruffle trim to the bottom, and then part of a paper doily.

I embossed the bottom portion of the Basic Gray piece with Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, then adhered the Pool Party piece and finally, added some Pearls.  

I just love the way the coloring appears with the White Embossing Powder....so pretty.  

What do you think?
