Floral Get Well Wishes

Good morning everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful Monday! Today I am going to share with you the card I created for the SCCSC75 Sketch Challenge on Stampin' Connection. Here is the card:

Stamps: Just Believe, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock: Concord Crush, Wisteria Wonder
DSP: Cheerful Treat (Hostess)
Ink: Lucky Limeade, Melon Mambo, Concord Crush, Versamark, Whisper White Craft
Accessories: Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Stampin' Sponge, Elegant Bouquet Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, 1/8" Rich Razzleberry Taffeta Ribbon, Basic Rhinestones Jewel Accents, Stampin' Dimensionals.

The card was based on this sketch: 

The card base is Concord Crush cardstock cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4". The next layer is Wisteria Wonder cardstock that was cut at 3 3/4" x 5". A piece of pink Cheerful Treat (Hostess) DSP was cut at 1 1/2" x 1 1/2". The edges were sponged in Melon Mambo ink and the DSP was adhered to the Wisteria Wonder cardstock in the upper left hand corner. A piece of green Cheerful Treat (Hostess) DSP was cut at 1 3/4" x 2 1/2". The edges were sponged in Lucky Limeade ink and the DSP was adhered to the Wisteria Wonder cardstock in the lower right hand corner.

The Wisteria Wonder cardstock with DSP was then run through the Big Shot in the Elegant Bouquet Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The Whisper White Craft ink pad was run directly across the cardstock inking up the raised images created by the embossing folder. This was set aside to dry.

Another piece of Cheerful Treat (Hostess) DSP was cut at 2 1/8" x 3 1/8". The flower silhouette image from Just Believe was stamped onto the DSP in Versamark and covered with Clear Embossing Powder. The embossing powder was heated with the Heat Gun and then the image was sponged over with Concord Crush ink. The embossing powder resists the ink so the pattern of the DSP shows through only where stamped. The remainder of the background is varying depths of Concord Crush. This was adhered to a 2 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of Concord Crush cardstock. A piece of 1/8" Rich Razzleberry ribbon was tied around the panel and into a knot.

The textured Wisteria Wonder cardstock was adhered to the Concord Crush card front. The greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes was stamped in Concord Crush ink in the lower left hand corner of the card front. The embossed panel was adhered to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. Basic Rhinestones Jewel Accents were added to the center of each of the flowers from the embossing folder that are visible, and three rhinestones were added under the greeting.
