Birds of Paradise

Photo from Pinterest Board: Dessert Bites: Macarons and Meringues
Hi, everyone!  This is my second card for today's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast.....for this card I chose this delish photo.....I love the yellow and green color combo, plus the pattern, green trim and blue handle on the cup reeled me in!  For my card, I stamped the ODBD 'Chalkboard Fan Background' in yellow, cut out the panel with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies, then cut out the aperature with the ODBD Custom Ovals Dies.  The white panel was sponged using a piece of scratch paper for the water and the clouds were sponged over a template cut with the ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies.  The image and sentiment are from the 'Aloha' set.  Two of the flowers were stamped on the bottom panel and one was stamped then cut out with the ODBD Custom Bird of Paradise Die to pop up over the frame. Some baker's twine and green gems were added for embellishments.

What an absolutely beautiful card Angella - love the subtle dimension you achieved by using the image inside and outside the aperture.
