A Frosty Flower for My Friend

I was the hostess for the Color Challenge over on Split Coast yesterday  - and I chose cream, raspberry and brown for the challenge with the optional 'dessert'  to make it floral or frosty.

I did both - my flower is all frosty with coarse glitter and a little bit of Buttermilk Acrylic paint on the petals.
I embossed an oval in the center of my card then cut an oval in brown Bazzill to layer inside the frame. My flowers were made with the Sizzix Flower 3D die. My sentiment is from the Vintage Garden Seed Packet set from Waltzingmouse.  I love the font on this don't you??

It would be a little tough to squeeze this into an envelope and mail it - but it would be a lovely card to 'hand deliver' to a friend!

Stamps: sentiment from Vintage Garden Seed Packet - Waltzingmouse
Paper: vintage cream - PTI, Raspberry Ripple - SU, brown - Bazzill
Ink: Archival Ink Coffee
Accessories: large oval punch - SU, buttermilk acrylic paint - Americana, oval Nestability, Flowers 3D die - Sizzix, Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive, coarse glitter - Martha Stewart, foam tape.
