Pastel Petals - Oh So Eclectic

Hello friends, and happy Monday!  I've had a busy afternoon and there's still a lot on my plate, but I wanted to stop in and share another card with you.  I'm spending SO much time in my craft room lately - I'm just in love with the new products from the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue and I can't stop playing with them! 

Today's card is another beauty from Oh So Eclectic.  This set is just stunning - so pretty that it landed the cover of the brand new catalogue!  I've had SO many people tell me that this set is number one on their wishlist. 

I was lucky enough to win it as a prize at a Stampin' Up! event in April, so I've had a few months to play with it already.  It really is a beauty!  I don't think it's a set I would have immediately been drawn to, but I fell in love with it once I had it in my hands.

There are a lot of images in this set and some beautiful sentiments - I used the watercolour wash stamp, intended to fill in the shape of the smaller flower, to create a layered background with Pool Party, Lemon Lime Twist, and So Saffron.  Isn't it amazing how Lemon Lime Twist can fit so seamlessly with such a pale and soft colour combo?  This colour is just amazing.  It's neon green (!!!) and yet it goes with EVERYTHING.  It's the little black dress of ink pads!

A little skiff of DSP - the crackle is from Colour Theory and the watercolour polka dot (watercolour. polka. dot.  OMG!) is from Delightful Daisy - and some ribbon - 1/8" Metallic Silver and 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon in Powder Pink - complete this fresh and pretty card.
