Hello Spring

One more card tonight, this is my second post of the day.  This is the second of three cards I need for a swap.  I decided to combine challenges.  This is my second entry to Leslie's Crooked Stamper Sketch Challenge #1,  The color scheme came from the Color Throwdown Challenge 330, and I am adding it to  Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge - Add a litttle texture.

I love embossing paste...I colored it up with a Maya road mist in lemon mettalic and spread it over  the Flower Frenzy stencil by The Crafters Workshop. Then I let it dry.  I went to work on my card base, using Stampin Up Certianly Celery again, and some designer paper of the same shade. I matted my embossed piece with white and added three enamel dots as flower centers on the daisies.  Hello Spring from the Simon Says Stamp set Flower Friend was embossed in green powder on vellum.

Thanks for stopping by!

ETA: This won a runners up at The Crooked Stamper's Sketch Challenge.
