Everything Eleanor in Pink

Today I am sharing a card using the Everything  Eleanor stamp set.  The card qualifies for the Less is More Week 92 Colour Challenge using the color pink. I decided to frame the  blossom as the focal point by layering the blossom inside the framelit from the Labels Collection dies. 

First the blossom was stamped on Pink Pirouette paper with Regal Rose ink.  Next I stamped it on Whisper White card stock. The tiny flower was stamped and embossed in VersaMark  on Vellum card stock.  It was colored on the back with a pink marker.  Both flowers were cut out, curled on the edges and layered over the stamped image.  A rhinestone brad from the Circle Fire collection (retired) holds the blossom together.

The swirl from the stamp set was added on the front in Old Olive ink, stamped off once.  A little pink color was sponged around the stem to carry the color  below the blossom.

Inside, the small blossom was repeated by stamping it on the white card stock. 

I like using the tent fold because it repeats the vertical arrangement of the floral design.

Wow, very pretty! I love how you highlighted the flower with the die cut opening. What a nifty idea. At first I thought it was a silk flower!
