This colour combination, along with the inspiration photo, did seem to scream out for a garden but I couldn't get the image of a marbled background using these colours out of my head. So I started with making up a piece of paper using the 'Not Your Mother's Shaving Cream' method of making a shaving cream background that I've used before from Kim Jolley at Stampin' Artfully. I've used Sweet Sugarplum, Powder Pink and Sahara Sand in the background.
I've stamped over that background with the flower stamen image from Colourful Seasons in Sweet Sugarplum and Basic Gray. I've added in some touches of silver too in the leaves too.
Here's a couple of close ups, which shows the background well. I like that the colours and the reasonably stark layout give the card an elegant, slightly melancholy feel that is suitable for a 'thinking of you' card but the use of the pinks give it a hopeful feeling too.
Update: Delighted to be chosen in the Top 5 at Colour Inkspiration.
I am also entering this card into the sketch challenge at AAA cards.
