Here's my creation:

Supplies used:
- 25mm Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts
- Pink Cherry Blossoms from Wild Orchid Crafts
- 8 x 8 First Paper Edition Rose Garden Paper Pad
- 6 x 6 Botanical Prima Paper Pad
- 6 x 6 Pink Paislee London Market Paper Pad
- Sizzix Hearts Sizzlits
- Tim Holtz Adage Tickets
- Greeting Farm Hello-Go-Round Stamp Set
- Dovecraft Tea Doilies
- EK Success Carnation Dimensional Flower Punch
- Lace
- From Stamp Art Design, I used the Gracie image (a bonus sentiment is included with this image)

This card contains quite a few layers and I thought I would try something different this time round as I don't normally put a lot of flower embellishments on my card, as I feel it may be a bit crowded. But I really like how this turned out. I didn't colour the image in this time around as I literally wanted the image bare and I thought my skills in colouring would probably mess up the image beyond repair! (I just sometimes have moments when I'm really too heavy handed with my Promarkers!) And I still think it turned out quite sweet and simple and that's exactly how I wanted it to be.

Hope you guys like my creation and as always please have a look at the blog to see the fabulous Team A creations and come back next week for the inspirational post mid-challenge from Team B. Submit your creations in to our challenge this week and you could win some awesome prizes!  

Challenge ends: Tuesday 4th June 2013


  1. Oh so pretty! I love that you didn't color the image and those flowers are stunning! Love it.

    1. Thanks Lynn! Think I need to put more flowers in my makes! :)


  2. Gorgeous card, Mel. I love the beautiful large flowers. Your colour scheme is very soft and lovely, giving the image a sweet effect. It's a pleasure to sponsor your challenge. xx Kathy
