Floral Hello - Tall & Skinny

Tall and skinny cards are something I rarely make but I did find a purchased card blank in my stash so decided to use it for this challenge. The colors used  are from the colourQ Challenge #314 and the sketch came from the Mojo Monday Challenge #421.

A panel of Old Olive was adhered over the white card base. A strip of black cardstock was adhered to the left of center and then two die cuts were adhered to the right of the black strip. Three flowers were cut, the edger sponged with Raspberry Ripple ink and adhered to the card. Two cuts were popped up with Dimensionals. A black die cut center was added to the third flower and it was adhered flat to the card.

An floral image from DSP was fussy cut, sponged along the edge and adhered. The sentiment was die cut and adhered. The inside was decorated with a strip of cardstock and another sponged floral cutout, leaving space to write a message.
