Floral Bouquet

I purchased some new Creatables from Marianne Design in the Netherlands, I was inspired by the creations of Elly's Card-Corner, she does amazing things by combining dies and punches.  I started with this great corner die, cutting it out and sponging ink on the embossed areas before removing it from the die.  Next using my Cheery Lynn Designs Scallop Oval Nesting dies, I cut the 3 oval panels.  I attached the corner pieces to the top and the bottom of the pink oval, trimming the pink from behind the cut outs on the corner die.  I embossed the background panel with my Cheery Lynn XL Eccentric Circles Embossing plate, inking the plate up before embossing the paper so the ink was transferred into the debossed spaces.  The image is Sweet Stamps Embroidery Bouquet, stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Cryogen paper.  Copics used:
Flower - RV23, RV25
Leaves - G40
Daisies - BG23, Y18
I added some Smooch Ink to the flowers for some added sparkle.  The last step was to add the pearl accents around the pink oval with my Viva Decor Pearl Pen.  Finished size is 5 x 7 inches.
