Flowers

It's Thursday and time for a new challenge over at Outlawz Twisted Thursday. This week's twist is BINGO - you don't have to use the twist, but if you do, you'll earn an extra entry in the prize draw.

I printed it onto watercolor paper, colored it using my Derwent Inktense pencils and fussy cut it. I rarely use green and pink on my cards, but this image kind of called for it, so I chose to use papers from Carta Bella's "Paris Girl" paper pad as well as a sheer pink ribbon. I mounted the image on foam and added it to a die cut oval which I stamped with a birthday sentiment. I used the diagonal row of ribbon, image and layers.


I'd also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1) Sweet Stamps - # 167 Photo Inspiration
2) Come and Get It - Spring Flowers
3) Created With Love Challenges - In the Garden
4) Paper Shelter Challenge -#156 Ribbon

The pink and green work so well together on this card Pia. Love the oval diecut - it makes a beautiful frame for the curved floral image.

So sorry I'm late commenting. We've had friends from UK spend a few days with us and I haven't had much time for blog-visits. This floral creation is simply lovely and beautifully finished with the sheer ribbon and bow. Very elegant, Pia.
