More Botanical Blooms

I saw this sketch at the CASE This Sketch challenge and thought it would indeed be a challenge so decided to stretch myself a little and give it a go.
You know how sometimes you have a gem of an idea in your mind, and then your creativity just flows and you pull it off perfectly? Well this was an experience like that, and it doesn't come often!  It started with the long leaf framelit to cut the vellum into the two pieces, then adding the washi tape to hide the adhesive I used to attach it to the card. The best part about the Vellum is that it is one of the coordinating Sale-A-Bration products that you can earn for free! From there I had to use Blackberry Bliss as one of the flower colours, and I think it contrasts so beautifully with Crushed Curry so I just started to layer the flowers until I got them how I liked them.  I decided to colour the "stem" of the leaf cut out both to highlight it and again to cover some of the use of adhesive.  

This is a close up of the flowers to show how I added some of the amazing new Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to add subtle sparkle to the edges of some of the flowers, the photo really doesn't do it justice, it is such a pretty soft shimmer.  Finally I added a metal rimmed pearl to the largest flower and more simple pearls to the smaller flowers. I am so happy with how this card evolved and came together.
