Die cuts and punches

Once again, I love the color combo at Colour Q so I needed to play along.
 I used this adorable Paper Smooches notebook die, the leaf die and then stamped the Paper Smooches rose.  My flower turned out a little more pink then coral but I love the end result so I am OK. 
 I also embossed the Navy cut notebook paper piece with a scallop embossing folder.  For the flower, I had colored a piece of white cardstock by placing it in a puddle of spray inks.  This just seemed like the most perfect place to stamp the flower.  There was some white showing through on the leaves of the flower so I colored them with a sky colored Copic marker.
 Here is the Colour Q combo.
 And, then for this card I just had fun with some of my new stamps, most from the Brush Strokes Hero Arts set.  The main background though is a stencil from Hero Arts softly colored with stamp pads.
I have a circle dot punch from EK Success and so I used that for some additional accents.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
