Quint-Essential Flower Friend Card - Hand Stamped Sentiments #155

It's been a while since I've done a colour challenge and for some reason decided to do this challenge with Hand Stamped Sentiments here
I also decided to use a stamp that I haven't used very much, as I thought it was perfect for this challenge - Quint-Essential Flower.  The colours for this challenge:  Daffodil Delight, Baja Breeze, Rich Razzelberry, and any neutral.

The base of this 5 by 5" card is Rich Razzelberry, layered with Whisper White cardstock that has been embossed with one of the Delicate Designs folders.  I then attached a strip of Rich Razzelberry DSP on the left side of the Whisper White layer, and a piece of Baja Breeze seam binding just below the midpoint of the card adjacent to the bottom.

Then I started building the flower.  Two images were stamped using Rich Razzelberry ink; two with Daffodil Delight, and two with Baja Breeze.  The various colours were punched out using a variety of sizes of scallop circle and circle punches.  They were adhered on top of each other using dimensionals.  You can see the layers in the side view of the flower above.  Once completed, some dazzling details was added to each layer, and a rhinestone in the middle of the top.

The finished flower was adhered to a 2 1/2" circle of Whisper White which was layered with a 3" circle of Baja Breeze card stock.  This circle was adhered to a square of Daffodil Delight cardstock. This unit was then attached to the card as shown above.  Because I love bling, I placed some rhinestones in each corner of the Daffodil Delight square.

The sentiment is from "Just Believe".  The word "friend" was inked with a Basic Black marker, stamped onto Whisper White cardstock and punched out with a small oval punch.  The layers under the sentiment pick up the challenge colours.
