Cherish every day

Lindy's Gang gave a beautiful color combo this month (as always...):
These colors give room to so many options, and this time I went on a soft feminine version. I love the contrast between the soft, pale colors to the bold tera cotta color of the leaves.
I started by stamping here and there on the background. Next I used embossing ink with a stencil and heat embossed it with a white ep.
I stamped two flowers with a gray ink, and one with embossing ink and heat embossed with a pale pink ep. For all the 3 flowers I outlined the petals with a black pen and adhered micro beads in the center.
I stamped and heat embossed leaves with a dark red-brown ep and cut them out.
The others leaves were cut with a die and colored with a Lindy's spray.
The edges of the paper were distressed, using a distressing tool and distress ink
I glued the lace petals with a gel medium and then gathered all the elements.
Splatters here and there, using Lindy's shaker and adding the sentiment.
