PWC311 - Flowers

Are you ready for a new challenge from Paper Pretties?  Well, it's Wednesday so we're ready even if you aren't.  This week the challenge PWC311 is "Flowers".  I love flowers but for some reason I rarely use them as an embellishment on my cards.   The good news for me and anyone else who is flower shy on cards is that the challenge doesn't say that you have to use three dimensional flowers to embellish your card or project.  My card may only have one big flower on it but if you look closely you would see that the background paper is a floral design, the border punch is also a floral design and in the stamp "Everyday Lily - clear", Lily is holding flowers.  There's lots of ways you can get those flowers on your card, so whip something up and then take a picture of it and submit it on our blog. You could win 5 digital images and we like to see what you make.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "Everyday Lily - clear"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"
paper - Copic X-press card stock; Bazzill "Glow", "Tawny Medium" and "Apricot" card stock; K & Co "TC Cottage Garden" dp pad
miscellaneous - copics; Cuttlebug birthday embossing folder; Martha Stewart border punch; cord; Close To My Heart mocha "Opaques"; MFT flower die

Here's the challenges:
Paper Pretties PWC311 - Flowers
A Random Fan #9 - Anything Goes
Cards and More #106 - Spring
