I started by stamping the flowers with Memento Black ink onto a panel of Whisper White cs, colored them with my Calypso Coral and Old Olive Blendabilities and then cut it into 3 smaller, equal panels. They're individually layered onto Old Olive cs. I inked up the stripes from the Gorgeous Grunge stamped set with Lost Lagoon, stamped it off once and then stamped the image across the Whisper White 4-1/4" x 6-1/4" card base. The left and middle panels are adhered directly to the card base; the third panel is adhered with Dimensionals. To cover the dessert for the Color Challenge, I recycled a strip of Old Olive 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon from an old card and wrapped that third panel with it. Phew...it just fit!
Finally, I stamped the sentiment to finish it off.

What a beautiful card! Looking at these beauties always broadens my horizons. Why do I always want to pop up the middle panel? This is so cool! As the eye moves across from left to right, Boom! The last panel is popped up! And tied up with a bow, too! How wonderful! Love it!

WOW, this is a winner Regina. Great job with the blendabilities. The flowers are beautifully colored and I love how you did the 3 panels and the cute bow on one of them. Luvin' the splash of sparkles! I love it.

Oh, this is gorgeous!!! I love how you've colored these flowers and how you've placed them in each piece of CS and then framed them--so inspired. Such a beautiful card!!! It just drew me in. Going into my favorites...
