Beginning with color is always a great way to start. A visit to the Design Team over at the ColourQ challenge blog never disappoints. This uber-talented group of ladies are so amazing. Green is my favorite color and just look at this wonderful inspiration ...
Whisper White cardstock served as my base with layers of paisley and polka-dot prints adding color. A scalloped chipboard square was painted, distressed, and covered with First Edition Newsprint before stitching was added. The sentiment stamped in Basic Black Classic Ink is from the Curvey Verses stamp set - a trusty stand by when I need a little whimsy. Some lace from Shirley (thank you!) along with seam binding I dyed with Baja Breeze Classic Ink and embellished with a button and pearl.
My flower is handmade and is created from Very Vanilla cardstock. I've made extra's that you can find available in my new ETSY shop! To finish off the look, a velvet leaf in wonderful shades of green was tucked in behind the bow adding further texture and completing my card.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed your visit. I'll be back tomorrow with something new to share ... see you soon!
