Loonie Stamper's Challenge - #103 Dazzling Bloom

The Loonie girls are at it again (they are at it every Friday!!) and this week the colors were so yummy I definately wanted to play along!!  The colors, as you can see, are Kraft and Yellow with an additional challenge to use Text Paper.  Interesting, until I typed this out, I had thought it was just to use text ... ooops!!  Oh well, I love how my card turned out!!
I used a 'new to me' Papertrey Ink set In Bloom.  I love it!!  I colored the bloom in with Copic markers (Y13, Y21, and Y26).  I had this yellow frame sitting around my scrap bin for a while now and decided to use it on this project.  I added some text to it by clear embossing (Background Basics:Text Style, Papertrey Ink).  A nice subtle effect.  The addition of the hemp and a vintage button (Papertrey Ink) keeps with the elegent but rustic feel of the card.  I popped all this onto the kraft card base and added a simple sentiment (Autumn Abundance - Papertrey Ink). 
Then, I couldn't help it, I added a bit of Dazzling Diamonds (Stampin' Up!) to the edges of the petals.  They just needed a bit of wow treatment!!
Now to check out what the Loonie ladies all did with this awesome combo:
Wendy, Maria, Dee, Jewels, Regan, and Char (who did make a card, even though she is up to her eyeballs in remodelling -- I just couldn't find it the first time I looked!) 
Awesome work, like usual. 

Well, thanks for taking a peek.  Leave me a little love and let me know what you think.

I'd still call this layout CAS, but popping the flower out of the main panel and adding a touch of glitter really gives it some pizazz!

Hi Missy!! We missed you! This card is FABULOUS!!

I too love the colour combo. Yep, I actually did play along but I think the post got buried beneath a second post that day so you might have missed it.
