Cure for the Monday Blues Challenge #15!

I am finally getting to play Cure for the Mondays Blues Challenge
Taheerah has been coming up with beautiful inspiration photos every Monday. 
 I have been meaning to play...but you know, life has been busy in my little blog! So here we are! I am so drawn to the bright colors in this gorgeous and festive table setting photo.thank you
My card is my little canvas...this is my way of bringing the fiesta to life!

~I started out with the embossing of the lines (embossed in gold and mint) by using the scrap strips of cling stamps.
~stamp the flowers and hearts in various shades with generational stamping
~add paint splatter with Liquid Pearl droplets and Mister Huey paint
~add sequins and gold strings
~apply SRM Stickers (sentiment and faux stitched lines)

Lastly, please check out our first guest designer over Virginia's View Challenge #3! This guest designer's projects will definitively inspire you!  
Thanks for stopping by!

YAY, you played!!! I cannot even begin to tell you how happy this makes me! Thank you so much Virginia!! Now onto the card itself! I so love the cascade of bright coloured blooms, and the touch of gold in both the bold stripe and the delicate thread is such a great little touch! Awesome addition of the stitching as a part of the stripes too! Thank you *so* much for playing to find a Cure For The Monday Blues!

I fell in love the minute I saw this card, BEAUTIFUL.

Tried to find something similar among my craft supplies....BUT no luck.

Did you use a die to cut out the flowers?

Hope you have a lovely day.
