Another "two for one"!

Happy Easter Everyone!
Decided to relax a bit this morning instead of running to the gym and complete at least one card. My sister's birthday is mid April and I am meeting up with her at my fathers place in Florida and thought I would replenish her "card box". I need to add some birthday cards to the mix and I had gone on over to Pals Paper Arts and they had a beautiful color challenge:

Perfect colors for Spring! Now that I had my color palette I needed a sketch so I went on over to Stamping 411 and this was their Saturday Sketch Challenge for the week:

So I combined the two and here is what I came up with:
Here is what I used:
Stamps: Well Scripted (sadly retired) and Elements of Style (hope it never retires!)
Ink: Chocolate Chip Craft ink, Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink
Punches: Decorative Label and 2 1/2 Circle punch
Embellishments Clear Embossing Powder, Beautiful Wings Emosslits, Vintage Wall paper folder, Pretty In Pink Satin Ribbon and Pearls
Tools: Blender Pen, Big Shot and Heat Tool
I had actually heat embossed the flowers with the chocolate chip craft ink so I could color the flowers with the blender pen and give it different tones.
Have a great Easter!
