Funky Flowers Hello

Here's my card for the current Fusion challenge.  I combined the sketch with the colors and graphic look of the inspiration photo to create my card.

Funky Flowers Hello-designed by Lori Tecler-Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Waltzingmouse Stamps
The flower in the pattern reminded me of the shape of one of the flowers in the Waltzingmouse Stamps Funky Flowers set, so I decided to make my own patterned paper using the flower stamp.  I stamped two different sized flower images repeatedly on a white panel in green pigment ink, then added the centers in contrasting yellow ink.  Unfortunately, when I added the sentiment panel, most of the smaller sized flowers got covered . . .

The "hello" sentiment comes from the Compact Sentiments set.  It's stamped in gray on a white panel.  I wrapped the bottom of the panel with yellow baker's twine, then added a die cut flower and leaves on top.  After matting the panel on green and yellow cardstock, I adhered it to the stamped panel using foam tape.  The finished panel was adhered to a coordinating green card base.  I thought about adding some sequins, but in the end, decided to leave the card as is.

Materials Used:
Funky Flowers and Compact Sentiments-Part Two stamp sets, Funky Flowers dies (Waltzingmouse Stamps); Memento Luxe Pear Tart, Dandelion, and Gray Flannel inks (Tsukineko); Limeade Ice and Lemon Tart cardstock (Papertrey Ink); white cardstock (Michaels); yellow twine (The Twinery); foam tape
