Just Us Girls #312 - Photo Inspiration

Hi friends!  The challenge over at Just Us Girls is a Photo Inspiration challenge.  Vicki chose the most amazing photo for us to be inspired by!
 
Here's a close-up of the photo!  So much to take away from it!
 
Here's my take on it.  I actually pulled out a top I have in my closet today which had this design on it and I knew I could recreate it for this card.  I first adhered the striped paper on the base of the card.  Then I die cut these flowers from watercolor paper, stamped the flower on it, and watercolored it with the Zig brushes.  I added some Wink of Stella on the centers.  I did the same for the leaves.   I adhered the leaves directly to the base and the flowers with dimensionals.  The sentiment was embossed with white embossing powder, and I finished it off with several sequins.
 
You can see more from the design team and our guest on the JUGs blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by!
