Monday Mood Board #26

Today, I have a card to share that I made for Monday Mood Board #26,
which was to use this photo as inspiration for a card.


I was inspired by the pink & gold and the flowers.
So, I pulled out one of my very favourite stamp sets -- Fresh Cut Florals --
and made this card:


I impressed my sweet blush background using my PTI Simple Stripes impression plate.
I die cut my banner and stamped it using Wplus9's Basic Banners.
I heat embossed the sentiment in gold.
Then, I had lots of fun stamping my flowers, berries & leaves.
On my kraft leaves, I added the detail lines with versa mark 
and heat embossed these in gold.
A few gold Pretty Pink Posh sequins finish it off.


I'm also linking up my card to the Wplus9 Birthday Celebration: Week 1 Challenge, which is "Comfort Zone", because I used my favourite Wplus9 stamps (Fresh Cut Florals), in my favourite style ("pretty CAS") and one of my go-to colour combinations. 
No wonder I like this card so much... ;)

Thanks for looking!
