FMS45 - Bordering on Romance & Poka Dot Parade

Design Team member Cindy Hall over at Freshly Made Sketches is the hostess for the week who created this sketch and brought us these fun shapes to play with.

I wish....I wish.... my little 10 month old would get his top teeth in soon so he could sleep through a little more and not have so much pain. I think it's almost out since it looks like a blister on the top least one...will see soon. Back to the card now.

If you would like to join the fun, you can click here to go directly to the challenge. Here is mine below:
I know this stamp set has been out for awhile, Bordering on Romance, but I just bought it myself and wanted to work on some coloring so here you go. I did incorporate one of the new DSP called Polka Dot Parade along with some Marina Mist & Rose Red cardstock.

I just love this flower and what a wonderful chance to color with my markers and the Aqua Painter. Colors used were: Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Rose Red, Certainly Celery, Wild Wasabi, Bashful Blue, Marina Mist along with So Saffron. Almost the entire collection of Subtles when I look now. SU Watercolor paper was used for this.

For the ribbon, I used 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon in Pear Pizzaz (now retired) along with punching out a little white flower with the Boho Blossoms Punch. Added a little button from the Twitterpated collection (retired). Need to buy more buttons.

As always, I did use Stampin Dimensionals under the Circles and for the sentiment, I used the stamp set: Apothecary Art. Hope you enjoy and have fun creating!!
