Hello Friends! Happy Thursday! It's time for another fun challenge at MelJen's Designs. The theme this week is...
Use flowers on your project

I printed the flowers and leaves onto white card stock and colored them with Distress Ink pads and finger daubers. It's a really quick and easy way to color. The Distress inks blend so nicely, it's really hard to make a mistake with this technique. After I was finished with the coloring, I cut fussy cut each image out and then arranged them onto my focal panel. I adhered everything down, and then embossed the entire panel with a Swiss Dots embossing folder. The raised dots are on the backside of the panel. I wanted the look of dots, but not the texture. I added lots of sparkle onto each of the flowers and finished the focal off with the sentiment panel, accented with two flat black sequins. I adhered all of that onto a piece of black card stock and that all went onto a white card base. I love how the bright colors look with the black and white card stock.
And here is a peek at the inside...
This greeting is from a really old Close to My Heart stamp set. But, I thought it fit nicely with the theme of the card. And, I added one more little flower to the inside to tie it all together.
I hope you make time to join our challenge this week. You just might win FREE digital stamps. Just remember, you must use a MelJen's Designs digital image on your project to be included in the random drawing. And as always, I ask that you please visit our Design Team blog, to be inspired by my Team Mates.
That's all from me today...Have a great Thursday. Thanks for stopping by!
