First, I brayered my glossy CS with pretty in pink ink. Next, I stamped the flowers with versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. Next, I sponged some pink passion around the flowers to make them pop. For the focal flower, I inked it up with Apricot Appeal, markered pretty in pink on the petals, then edged the petals with pink passion before stamping on whisper white CS. I stamped the leaves with Gable Green on Gable Green CS and then cut everything out. 2 leaves are adhered directly to the background layer, one is popped on 1 dimensional, and the flower is popped on 2 dimensionals.
Lastly, I stamped Aloha with pink passion on whisper white, lightly sponged some pink passion around the edges and clipped the corner with the ticket corner punch. Same with the pink passion layer, and then I put the brads in the black layer.
If I were doing this over, I would have added a layer of black between the background and the gable green base...or even a layer of pink passion. It definitely needs a little more. But, given the 45 minute time limit...I'm satisfied.

PS. Mom and dad got here this morning safe and sound...and I've been having a BLAST with my new pasta machine for embossing with my cuttlebug folders!! Now to make something with them all!! :-) However, mom did forget my Doddle This set...so I'll have to wait a little longer to play with it. :-( Oh well. I'll survive. I suppose.
