Pastel Perfect Petals

I have  trio of simple cards to share today...featuring the 'Perfect Petals' stamp (by Woodware) that I used last week on this card. This time I went for calmer pastel colours, stamping the flowers using Versamark Ink, then heat embossed it using white embossing powder. I did the same with the sentiment stamp from the same set, then doodled a simple border using a white gel pen. I added a touch of co-ordinating colour to the flowers using Distress Inks...'Stormy Sky' on the blue, 'Dusty Concord' on the purple and 'Cracked Pistachio' on the green.


Here are some close-ups:
