Color Throwdown # 445 using Altenew Hennah Elements

Happy Color Throwdown Wednesday!

The colors for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge #445  are Navy, Light Pink, Gold and White

I first used a piece of Navy card stock to emboss the flowers and flourishes from the Altenew Hennah Elements stamp set.  I used Ranger Embossing Powder in Princess Gold. 

I then embossed the larger flower and leaf with the same embossing powder onto some Bristol Smooth card stock. I also used some Wink of Stella on the flower to add some sparkle.

I colored them in with Spectrum Noir markers:
Flower: PP1 and PP3
Leaf: BT1 and BT4

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and heat embossed with the same gold embossing powder. 
To add some interest I did a backing of velum on that white strip.

The flower is popped up with some foam dots to add some dimension. I put onto a piece of patterned paper to give that light pink background.

I made a envelope out of some white card stock  and again heat embossed a different flower from the set. I colored it in with the same Spectrum Noir markers as the flower on front. 

Thank you for visiting and I will see you next week for another challenge!
