Anemones in Blue

The sun is nowhere in sight this morning...all the more reason to create a sunny yellow background on my card!  I was inspired by Stacey's beautiful Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge photo (florals and stitched edges) and am including the colors that up for The Challenge on Lesley's blog - light blue, dark blue, yellow and green!  Edited to add: So bummed, but I missed the deadline for Curtain Call. :-(

I started with Ranger watercolor CS and die cut a panel using Lil' Inker Designs'
Wonky Stitched Rectangle die.  I used Squeezed Lemonade distress ink to add a color wash background, then stamped the anemone bouquet using Beanstalk dye ink (WPlus9).  The anemones (stamped off once with Bo Peep ink before adding the step 2 floral layer) and several leaves were die cut and popped with foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment using WPlus9's Fairy Dust ink which is such a pretty light gray shade!  Clear sequins were the finishing touch. 

STAMPS: Watercolored Anemones (WPlus9), Greetings and Salutations (WPlus9).
PAPER: Bashful Blue (SU), Ranger watercolor CS, Neenah Solar White.

That's all for now...heading out to run some errands and look for some hanging pots to put on my front porch!
