Pocket Full of Posies . . .

Hello blogger friends!
Today I have a quick card to share with you that I made for a new monthly challenge blog I discovered . . . Vintage Stamping Challenge and the current theme is:   
Pocket Full Of Posies

The items used to create this card are:
Papers:  Wedgewood Blue cs, Colorbok 'rosewood' dp, Pink cs
Stamps:  SU Fifth Avenue Floral
Ink:  Versafine Black
Accessories:  Wedgewood Blue Satin Ribbon, Cheery Lynn Designs Butterfly die, Dollarama Crafters Rhinestones, Pink brad

 It was great fun to get away from Christmas or Snowy cards and make something with butterflies & flowers.  I paper pieced the focus flower and that too is something I haven't done much lately and was fun to do again.  

I don't think there are many other challenges out there at the moment that this card fits . . . but I will take a peek at Feline Playful to see and will add them here if I find any.

 Lady Anne's Challenge - Anything Goes (must stamp)

Another snow storm is predicted for over the weekend but I'm hoping they are wrong because we have family wanting to come and spend the weekend and I'm so hoping the weather doesn't delay them.  Talk to you soon and thanks so much for stopping by today!  AND ... as always . . .

Ahhh...beautiful, Darlene! I like the clever way you used the patterned paper in your background and in the stamped focal point flower. That looks lovely! Just love these colors you've put together as well! ;D
