Pretty In Pink (And Green)

Good morning everyone and hope you've all had a lovely weekend to set you up for the week. Thanks for all the commiserations with my hay fever which has sadly come back today so I'm sneezing again!
Being Monday we have a new challenge for you over at Make My Monday and today sees the last of Suzi's Floral Theme for the month and this week we would like to see your floral creations with Pink, Green and White.



My card is another of my gate fold surprises which I really like doing for that added extra special touch.
The base card is a Papermania 5x7 gate fold card blank and I cut 2 panels of white card to fit the front sections, embossed them with a Papermania floral folder then inked with Shabby Shutters Distress ink and swiped with Tattered Rose.
I stamped the chrysanthemums  by Circa Design with Archival Olive ink on white card, coloured by sponging with the same Distress inks and then die cut with an oval die. I inked the edges with the pink ink and attached the panel to the left side of the card.
I then cut a panel of white card slightly smaller than the inside of the card, stamped the flowers again on the right side and sponged with slightly lighter colour. I then stamped on the Hobby Art sentiment at the top left side to finish.

The Design Team have come up with an amazingly different array of cards in the colours for your inspiration so do hop over for a look.

Challenges for my card:
Sentimental Sundays - Pocket Full Of Posies (slightly appropriate here with the atishoo bit lol)
Cute Card Thursday - Pink & Green

Have a great day.

A gatefold card is lovely Fliss and I love yours with its embossed and inked panels outside and the soft look of the crysanths. I do feel for you about the hay fever - it's miserable for sufferers. Vicky x
