Absolutely Fabulous

Hello there!  It's sunday evening here and back to the normal day to day as of tomorrow.  It's our youngest last week of school and it's jammed packed with activities from a field trip, baseball games and school carnival.
The card I have for today is one that I made about a week ago to send to someone who was kind enough to gift me the My Favorite Things, Absolutely Fabulous dies I used on the card I'm sharing today.  She was so sweet to send me these die since she already had a set and I truly appreciated receiving them.
For my card, I started out with an aqua mist card base and die cut a piece of white cardstock using the Absolutely die.  Once that was die cut, I used the MFT Circle Grid stencil and stenciled on some aqua mist ink in a circular pattern.  Then I stamped and watercolored three of the flowers from the Pretty Posies set onto watercolor paper and die cut them.  Before adhering them to my card front, I played around with my arrangement of where I wanted them and stamped some of the other leaves and flowers from the set around where I wanted my flowers to go and once I was done, I adhered my three main flowers popping up the orchid colored flower with foam tape.  Next I die cut my fabulous word from lavender lace cardstock and sponged on some wilted violet distress ink along the bottom and add it to my card. To finish off my card, I added some silver sequins, some silver glitter pen, white gel pen and some Wink of Stella glitter pen over the main flowers.
I hope you have a peaceful evening and a great start to your week tomorrow.

I just love your card! The color combo is stunning, and the soft stenciling and watercolored florals pull all of the elements together beautifully!!
