I started my card making a background with faded jeans and wilted violet distress oxides. I did several layers, then brought in the flowers from Joyful Blooms, first stamping with water to lift some of the ink away, then coming back and stamping randomly in the same shades of blue and purple. Lots of spritzing, some stenciled on texture paste and some splatters all went into the finished product. I embossed the sentiment in white and used some of the leftover pieces when I cut my panel down for the vertical strip in the background.
The flowers are stamped onto watercolor paper in faded jeans and wilted violet distress inks. I then watercolored the centers with watered down distress inks. The outer flowers are cut with the coordinating Joyful Blooms Die Set and the inner flowers are fussy cut and popped up on dimensionals. I added some Sprightly Sprigs die cuts, dusted in glitter and a bit of cheesecloth to finish off the dreamy look to this.

Layer 2: 0.5" x 5.25" or ribbon
