Pansy Happiness

Wow! This is 2 weeks in a row that I did a Tuesday challenge on a Tuesday! That must be some sort of a record for me! LOL
This card is for the Flourishes FTTC49 where Silke challenges us to create with a great sketch! It's also for the SCS CC253 color challenge where Betty challenges us to use Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip, and Rich Razzleberry. The "dessert" for this challenge is to use houndstooth in some way.
I started with a Vintage Cream card stock base. I chose the Flourishes Pansy image from the calendar flowers set, stamping it with Versafine Onyx Black on wc paper, and then embossing with clear ep. I colored it with a blender pen using Razzleberry ink, and added touches of pale yellow, green and gold with Tombow markers. I cut the image and mat with a blossom Nestabilities, and layered the vertical panels with pretty in pink and chocolate, embossing with the houndstooth ef. The horizontal panel is PTI dsp with a piece of gingham ribbon and a scalloped border along the bottom. The sentiment panel is from SU!'s So Many Sayings, stamped with Chocolate on wc paper and punched with the word window and modern label punches. 2 tiny pink gemstones were added for the final touch.
Thanks so much for dropping in today, it's always nice to have you :)
