Let Your Soul Take Wings . . .

Happy Saturday Everyone!
While my dear sweet husband was busy hooking up our new dishwasher last evening, I decided to 'stay out of his way' and created at card for the new challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.  Their challenge this time around is a FLOWERS & RIBBON theme.

Well, I just joined their Ribbon Club (OMG what gorgeous ribbon packs) and I've been busy making my own homemade flowers so this challenge had my name on it!
Here's what I created ... hope you like it!

OMG I have seen so many BEAUTIFUL creations from the RRR design team using 
this green & purple color combination, I just couldn't wait to create
a card using it myself.  I'm so happy with the outcome!
Here's a couple close-ups of the details ...

I think my flowers are getting better!
But I'm going to keep practicing ... that way I'll have
a large selection of different styles and
colors that I can choose from when
I don't have the time to make them 'on demand'.

 A few other challenges to share in:
QKR Stampede Challenge - Bring on the Green
Creative Moments Challenge - Anything Goes/Spring Green
Double Click Challenge - Use the color Green
Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge - Green +White+Choice of Color
Craft-Dee Bowz March Challenge - Anything Goes w/Bow

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I hope you've found inspiration in my design.
REMEMBER ... turn those clocks AHEAD tonight!
As always ...
