Timeless Tuesday? Mercy Me!

Here I go, combining challenges again! I love doing that! Today, I combined last week’s Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch Challenge 66 and today’s Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge 60. For the Flourishes challenge, we were given 3 inspiration photos. I chose the third one – with the pretty light teal walls and the hydrangea bed spread.
I don’t have any Flourishes hydrangeas, so I used the Primrose from Calendar 1. I was trying to pick up the pink color in the bed spread, but when I was coloring the flower with my pastels, it turned out more red than pink (I was mixing colors together!). I used Flourishes White CS as my base and added a layer of light teal and some patterned paper that came from a Christmas pack (it doesn’t look Christmas-y, does it?). I added some polka dot ribbon and tied the bow along with a red button with some silver cord. I used the corner punch on the main image and layered that onto Ruby Red and added a few self-adhesive rhinestones. The sentiment is from SU. I popped up the main image with SU dimensionals. A pretty simple and uncluttered card! I was going to add more to it, like stitching, but when I looked at it again, I thought it was better without it. Thanks for having a look!
