Floral Anniversary

Hi, everyone!  Before I share my card, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Amy Seigler - thank you for joining me!

Today's card was inspired by MFT Summer School - Complementary Colors at My Favorite Things.

"Complementary colors refer to colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel — yellow-purple, red-green, and orange-blue being the traditional complementary pairings." - Stephanie Klauck

Clear stamps:  MFT Stamps - Modern Blooms, sentiment from Simon Says Stamp - Happy
Dies:  Gina Marie Designs Stitched Rectangle, Cheery Lynn Mini Dimensional Butterflies
Ink:  Your Next Stamp Lovely Lilac and Purple Passion, Simon Says Stamp Duckling, Brilliance Sunflower Yellow
Other:  Recollections butterfly punch, gems, cupped flower sequins

The Modern Blooms are layering stamps so I used my MISTI and chose a lighter and darker shade of the two complementary colours.  I started stamping the lighter shade of flowers and leaves in the lower left corner.  After I stamped one colour, I would flip my cardstock so that the upper right corner was now at the lower left and then I stamped them again.  I proceeded with each colour, first light and then dark, continuing to flip the cardstock and stamping until I was happy with the stamped pattern.  I die-cut a stitched rectangle from the stamped panel, layered it with a coordinating cardstock rectangle and some craft foam for dimension, and then adhered it back on to the stamped panel.  I stamped the sentiment in black and then finished off the card with some punched and die-cut butterflies, accented with cupped flower sequins.  Gems were added to two of the flowers.

I would also like to support the following challenges: Allsorts In My Garden 1/3; Butterfly Challenge Spin the Butterfly Wheel with the Letter W (I went with Wisteria and two butterflies) 2/3; Craft Stamper Magazine Take It Make It AG Stamping 3/3; Creatalicious AG Optional For a Hero UE; Cute Card Thursday AG UE; DL.ART July AG Linky 1/d; Happy Little Stampers AG with Dies UE; Pammie's Inky Pinkies AG 2/3; Stamped Blessings heARTful Stamping AG plus Stamp 2/2; Stamping Sensations In My Garden 1/3; STAMPlorations Summer Theme and Sketch Stamps and AG UE; The Corrosive July AG 3/3; The Outlawz Festive Friday FF070618 Anniversary/Wedding 1/3
