A Cupcake & Color Combo Challenge

I combined Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #17 and Splitcoast's Color Combo Challenge #167 to create this fabulous card! Technically the colors for the color combo were Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, and CERTAINLY CELERY, but I was all out of celery so I substituted Wild Wasabi. I like how it turned out!

I used my new Floral Whimsy stamp set from Verve Visual and I LOVE it! I stamped the outline vase on Blue Bayou textured CS and cut it out. The flowers were stamped on Whisper White with black Stazon and colored with my blender pen and Soft Sky & Wild Wasabi ink. The matted main image is popped up on dimensionals. The card base is Blue Bayou textured CS with a large piece of Soft Sky textured CS at the bottom, separated by some Wild Wasabi ribbon. I added 3 large silver brads (Making Memories) and stamped the sentiment with black Stazon.
