Hero Arts - Feburary 2012B Challenge

Hello, how's everyone doing? It's been two weeks since i made a card. I just got over a cold with really bad sinus pain. The last few days, i was just looking at my stamping stuff and could not create anything. Deadline for Hero Arts February Challenge is up today, so i had to make something :)

I got my inspiration for the flowers' color from this week's Runway Inspired Challenge. After coloring with Copic markers, I masked the flowers and stamped HA envelope pattern background.

Before masking

Masked and stamped with envelop pattern background

The yellow paper strip is adhered flat on the card stock; the left strip of paper and the flower are adhered on foam tape to create some dimensions. Thanks for looking!!
