Artistically Awesome Showcase - Day Three

Well hello there!  Things are heating up here in California!  We're gearing up for lots of heat over the next ten days!  I HATE....ABSOLUTELY HATE it when it is OVER 100!!!!  I'm thinking a trip to the coast might be needed...the temperature drops 30 to 40 degrees in just a two hour drive!  I have a son in Phoenix, Arizona and a son in Perry, Georgia and they're gonna be feelin' the hot weather too!  I'm not gonna complain...I'm just gonna sparkle (sweat) and be grateful for another day!

I have another card for you today using the Artistically Awesome stamp set. I cased the layout of the card from a gal named Mariana Grigsby...I think I found it on Pinterest, but I can't find it again to link to it...nor can I find the picture that I saved for reference. 

I do have the card I created though....THANK GOODNESS!!


The designer paper for the background and the flowers is from the In-Color collection.  I used my Circle Framelits to cut circles in the Mint Macaron designer paper.  I stamped the images that I wanted from the Artistically Awesome stamp set on Whisper White cardstock...placing them where the circles were cut.  I added vellum to the back of the designer paper to give the stamping a softer look.  The flowers are punched with the Petite Petals punch and their color is Watermelon Wonder. The base of the card is Tip Top Taupe.  I added some bling by using the new Metal Rimmed Pearls and some sequins....a nice touch I think!

Don't forget to stamp the inside of your card!  I added some more sequins just for fun!  I'm really sorry that the photo is a bit blurry...I just couldn't get it to take right...I have no idea what I was doing wrong...I tried several times and this is the best of the bunch!
