Playing with Flowers . . .

Hello friends!

In case you hadn't noticed, I've been on a roll playing with homemade flowers lately and today I have a simple but cute card to share with you.

I'm not sure what's going on with my camera [sigh] but the flourish & butterflies are actually a very pretty PINK color.  Looks more coral in the photo ... oh well ... I'm sure the design is of more interest to you than the color.

Here are the items I used on this A-6 size card:

Papers:  White 80# smooth cardstock, Pink 80# cardstock
Accessories:  Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Martha Stewart 'branch' punch, Cheery Lynn Designs B117 Fanciful Flourish die, Spellbinder Framabilities 'Scallop Edge Frame', PunchBunch 'kikyou' punch, Kaiser pearls, Pebbles, Inc. 'pearlescent chalk', McGill flower making kit and mat

Other qualifying challenges:

House of Gilli - Flowers
Karens Doodles - Something Spring
Make It Monday #84 - Anything Goes
Stamps & Fun = Creativity - Butterflies
The Pink Elephant - Flowers
Truly Madly Crafty - Handmade Flowers
Crafting When We Can - Things with Wings
The Squirrel and the Fox - Things with Wings
Cheery Lynn Designs - Think Spring

Well that's it for me today!  Please stop back tomorrow when I will have the latest SISTERHOOD OF CRAFTER'S creation & challenge to share with you.  Wait till you see what we're doing this time around ... you're sure to want to be a part of the fun!!

See you next time!

It's beautiful, Dar! I enlarged it and could just see the pink at the center of the flowers. And that they seem shimmery! Thought it was stunning with all the 'white' anyway!
