Blushing Hydrangeas

Good Tuesday morning! I'm happy to have another day off work today and couldn't resist getting inky for the following challenges:

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge - create a thank you card

SCS Color Challenge

Karen Barber has an awesome color combination for the CC...love the Blushing Bride, Certainly Celery and Soft Suede trio she chose - and I combined it with Karen Giron's great sketch for this week! 
I used the Belleek-inspired technique by brayering Soft Suede ink on the plaid EF prior to running it through the Big Shot.  I colored this great new hydrangea image with Copics then fussy-cut it and layered it over the embossed panel.

STAMPS: Hydrangea (Flourishes), Joyful Blooms (Verve)
PAPER: Devotion (Creative Imaginations), Blushing Bride, Soft Suede, White, X-Press It Blending Card
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black, Soft Suede
ACCESSORIES: Oval tab Die-Namic (MFT), Ribbon by SU, Plaid EF, Brayer
COPICS: RV0000, RV10, RV11, YG11, YG13, YG63.
