Totally Hues Challenge #6

I've been following Heather Pulvirenti's blog for a while.  She combines colours so well and her creations are always inspiring!  She started a colour challenge a while back, but I haven't had the chance to play along {correction--I have played along, but never post by the deadline}. . . until now !!  Here's the combo for her current challenge #6 {Lemon Tart, Aqua Mist, Simply Chartruese & Raspberry Fizz}

Given we're one week away from Easter, I thought I'd make another Easter card. I stamped the card base with a dots stamp from Verve.  Then I ran a scrap of green cardstock through with my Swiss Dots embossing folder. Before layering that on top of some vellum and stitching it onto the card base. I stamped a flourish (a stamp so old I don't even remember the manufacturer) a few time with Versamark ink.

I used some more of my Prima flowers, and made the brad by stamping the same flourish on some Lemon Tart scraps, punched it out, and added it to an old brad with an Epoxy dome sticker.  Stamped the PTI Mexa Mixed Messages sentiment onto a scrap of Aqua Mist, trimmed with decorative scissors, distressed lightly with DI Walnut Stain, and tucked under the flower with a loop of soft yellow ribbon.

So glad I finally got to join in one of Heather's challenges!

Since I had some vellum out, I also made this uber soft baby boy card.  I stamped the sentiment on vellum before stitching it to the card base I had stamped (in Powder Blue) with an old small floral damask stamp I have (I think Studio G)--trying to bring out and use the old stuff I had forgotten about!
 I heat embossed the sentiment (before stitching) with some metallic blue embossing powder.  It adds the perfect shimmer and depth to a card that is very light.  I'm thinking it will be perfect as a Christening card.

Okay one more post to got today!  I think this will be a record!

Thanks 4 your time!
