Picking Flowers



Hello Everyone,

Today I have for you a lovely card I have made that fits two challenges one from Moving Along With The Times and the second challenge from the blog Anything Goes Challenge Blog.
I have created a A5 card with which I have used a sketch from Moving Along With The Times, to create the design, the backing paper was from old stock I have (I think it might have come from a magazine), the strip across the middle is thin pastel lemon, which I have tied a piece off ribbon around and then tied a bow at one end. The image in the center is on water colour card, coloured in using promarkers, and then matted onto a square that I have cut out using the Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art cartridge. To finish off the card I have added yellow stickles flowers and in one corner I have created a swirl design. In the top two corners I have added two large pearls, and in the bottom left corner I have created a flower display using one lemon flower and two white flowers.
