Layered Flower Card

Here is a card I made using a free coloring book page I found while googling (sp?). I printed it out on four different papers from a free digital paper set I found on the internet called Tie-Dye Cherry Blossom. I made a gradient fill design in Adobe Photoshop Elements using the dropper tool and taking two samples of color. I used this for the backround paper, the top flower section and the part with the black border (was that as confusing as it sounded?). In case I didn't mention it...I hand cut all the layers (this is probably why my husband mentioned that it seemed to be taking a REALLY long time to cut that out!) then I used scotch foam tape to layer the different layers of the flower. I topped the flower off with a bit of bling using a heat fix gem. I then stamped the sentiment with staz on using a inkadinkadoo stamp. Hope you like it :)

I'm entering this into the Moxie Fab World challenge and the challenge on the 'Paper, Scissors and Superheroes' blog.

Very pretty and such a great idea using digital papers. I spent hours this morning looking at colouring pages to make a video.
We must be on the same wavelength but your idea is way superior. I will have to try this one myself.
