Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a restful weekend!

Today I have a card to share which I made for the Pinkfresh Studio August 2022 Challenge! The theme of this month’s challenge is BEAUTIFUL BACKGROUNDS.

I made a card with a floral background which features the Inky Floral Background from the July Release. I used the pretty pastel color palette provided in the challenge graphic plus a bit of yellow! Instead of using gray I hot foiled my sentiment in silver.


To start I white heat embossed the Inky Floral Background on Neenah solar white panel. To stencil each of the four stencils which are for the flowers of the image, I used the Coral Reef, Apricot, Sky Blue and Sunshine. I then ink blended Mint color on the leaves using a small blending brush. To add some shine I covered the flowers with a clear sparkle brush pen. I inked the edges of the panel lightly in Sunshine and trimmed the panel down.

I rounded the corners of the background panel and foam mounted it on a white cardbsae the corners of which are also rounded.


The Sentiment Suite: happy birthday was hot foiled in silver shimmer and die cut using the coordinating die.
I added the die cut sentiment to the card using foam tape. To finish off I scattered a few Clear Iridescent Drops.


Hope I was able to inspire you with my card and you’ll play along!

  1. This is so so pretty TaeEun and I love the stamped flowers and leaves and then coloured so beautifully with the four stage stencil, and the wonderful glittery silver foiled sentiment and added irridescent drops are just perfect as finishing touches. x
