Special Day Hydrangeas

Hello Everyone!!!  As you probably know, this week (and Monday next week), the team are showcasing the JustRite Papercraft May Release and so far I've been making Masculine Cards......but TODAY, I got to go all girly with the new Botanical Medallions and Banners set!!!  *Happy Sigh*
Is this pretty or what??!!!  I've paired it with an older background stamp - Ticking Stripe Background which I thought would be perfect with these stamps.  :)

I've used a dark purple bazzill base and layered with light purple, white, Bo Bunny Ambrosia DP (which I've sewn around the edge....always a scary thing when I drive the sewing machine!) and attached some Lavender Silk Ribbon from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  Next I've stamped the Hydrangeas from Botanical Medallions and Banners in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card coloured with Copics (BV000, BV11, BV34, BV17, C3, C5, G20, G21, G24, G28) and cut out.  Next I stamped the medallion image, cut it out with the matching Nested Oval Medallion Labels Dies and airbrushed some Y32 over it.  The Banner image has also been stamped and cut out (it would have been quicker and easier with the new Vintage Labels and Banner Dies......but mine are still swimming across the Pacific) and lightly coloured with BV0000, BV000, BV11 Copic Markers.  I've popped both the banner and the hydrangeas up on foam tape over the label.  Next I've cut two sizes of Fleur de Lis Squares out of purple and then cut a piece of white card to fit inside the biggest one and stamped the Ticking Stripe Background in Memento Cantaloupe on it.  I've attached all the panel pieces together and glued it to the middle of the card front and finished by adding a silk bow and a few Kasiercraft Snow Pearls to the corners.
