Flourishes Web Celebration - Day 5

Happy Friday everyone~
It's the final challenge for Flourishes Web Celebration!! I hope you've enjoyed checking out the Flourishes DT and FOF's Sneak Peeks as well :) All new sets will be released tonight!!

OK, here is the final challenge detail:
Day 5 - We hope you've enjoyed this week of fun and games as much as we have! If you click on our new web store, you'll notice our home on the web is awash in shades of pink and green. So, as we wrap up our week of Grand Opening challenges, all you need to do is create a card using these two colors! Simply create and link up on the challenge post of Flourishes blog and you'll be in the running for a goody bag from Flourishes! If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCCEL5. You have until Monday, March 15th at 6 PM EST to link up your cards. And, as you hop on over to visit our talented designers, you'll see a soon to be released set called Easter Basket. This set is just overflowing with possibilities – and as you make the rounds, you'll see why! This set will be released right after our Power Hour Release Party TONIGHT. The party starts at 9 PM CST in our SCS Member Company Forum!


Here is my take on the green & pink challenge :):)
Easter Basket set is very pretty and the images definitely have Lauren Pope's vintage art style :):) -- reminds me those vintage children books, which I got inspired when I created this card.
I used the designer paper from Making Memories for the background and it was zig zag stitched. On the top note classic ivory mat, I stamped the eggs and glass images (some of the eggs were masked also) with Memento rich cocoa and colored with Copic markers. I stamped the bow image twice and colored with Copic markers as well. They were trimmed and adhered on the two corners of the top note mat.
The main mat was created with Nestabilities die and the greeting and rabbit image were stamped. For the finish touch, I attached the rhinestones. I think I used the same rhinestones a lot this week, didn't I? What can I say...I love bling, lol :):)


Now, check out what these Flourishes DT and FOF have created using Easter Basket!!
