Double D - Topical

Dear Ones~
Today's post is for the Double D Challenge TROPICAL. I  LOVE this challenge, just look at this amazing Mood Board provided for our inspiration. WOW - awesome colors and subject matter here:

And here is my card:
I simply adore the Stampin' Up Botanical Builder Framelits. Here I cut the flowers from GKD Tomato Soup and SU Pumpkin Pie and Flirty Flamingo card stocks. Then I sponged them with SU Pumpkin Pie and GKD Cranberry Tart. The leaves wre cut with the same framelits set and sponged with SU Always Artichoke Ink. I cut a shape with the Spellbinders Lotus die (a really old die, haven't used it in years), and attached it to a panel of SU Botanical Gardens patterned paper and then placed the flowers. That was matted with GKD White card stock and adhered to a GKD Tomato Soup card base. The greeting is from the SU stamp set called Beautiful You.

The Ingredients:
GKD Tomato Soup & White Card
SU Pumpkin Pie & Flirty Flamingo Card
SU Botanical Gardens Patterned Paper
Spellbinders Lotus Die
SU Botanical Builders Framelits
GKD Cranberry Tart Ink
SU Pumpkin Pie & Always Artichoke Ink
