In Honor of the Queen: a Card

I know many of you watched the wedding of Meghan and Harry.  Did you find yourself looking at all the people through the Stampin' Up! colors?  I have to admit that's often how I view the world.  Did you notice the Lemon-Lime Twist and Gorgeous Grape worn by Queen Elizabeth.  I got this pic from Google.

She really looked pretty although a smile might would help.  I decided to make a card with the same colors in honor of the queen.

Of course we needed flowers on the card!  Do you see what I used for the flower?  Well, we'll get to that.

The base is Lemon Lime Twist 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The Gorgeous Grape layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  The next Lemon Lime layer is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  Run this layer through the Big Shot with the Garden Trellis embossing folder.  This folder makes everything looks fancy!

The petals of the flower are made with the sea weed framelit from the Under the Sea Framelits.  Don't you just love finding a new way to use something!  This is not an original idea.  I saw it somewhere on Pinterest, but I can't find it now to give credit.  Make 4 of the sea weed shapes in Gorgeous Grape and adhere them with a little glue.  The center of the flower is a Lemon Lime Twist 1/2 inch circle.  Just punch it.  I played with the paper until I could pull it apart.  That makes it have a suede like appearance.  

The leaves are from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.  They are Mossy Meadow.  Adhere the flower and leaves with dimensionals.

Finally, the sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.  Use the Classic Label Punch to punch it out.

For the inside I added another flower.  The saying is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set.

I really love how this card turned out.  These colors do look great together.
