Varada Sharma Designs - Floral Wishes

Hello Crafty Friends and Happy Wednesday!  Today I'm featuring the Mini Slimline Floral Wishes digital image and sentiment from Varada Sharma.  This image is part of the larger Spring Blessings Digital set for the March 2022 release.

I've colored the image using Spectrum Noir Illustrator Alcohol Markers, then fussy cut and set aside to work on the background.  

I've embossed a background panel using the Picnic Floral Embossing Folder from Simon Says Stamp.  This folder is part of the Vintage Garden Stamp Kit for August 2022.  It's a 3-D folder that leaves the prettiest floral image impressions over the entire card panel.  The stamp kit has sold out but I do believe the stamp set, coordinating dies and embossing folder can be purchased separately now.  

To finish off the design, I've cut a flag banner out of a snippet of patterned paper from a digital paper set from Polkadoodles and added iridescent sequins for shine.

That's all I have for today friends.  Until next time, Happy Crafting!
