PDCC #166 A Splash of Retro!

It's been awhile since I played along with a Play Date Cafe Color Challenge :


Isn't her outfit fabulous???  I decided to use my fave flower stamp from the 2013 Hero Arts catalog release CG525 Tall Flowers:



I embossed the flowers in black and added a few green gems and black pearls to the flower centers.  I die cut the frame from the same Stampin' Up Glorious Green cs I matted the stamped floral panel with.  The die cut frame was then stamped tone-on-tone with the coordinating stamp.  (Both the Papertrey ink stamp and die cut were sent to me by my sweet blogging buddy Nancy !)  The bold "Hello" sentiment is from an older Hero Arts clear set CL266 Mix & Match Elements.

Since I used a new Hero Arts stamp I'm also going to pop this into the current Hero Arts challenge :

HI Robin, This card IS a 'Spring Dreamer' 8-)
Still looking for ideas to keep your 'bling' seperated? Just saw this interesting idea with a paper towel holder & clear sheet pages:
