Pastel flower



My choice for my card today was a pastel flower, for this I used a die cut from Marianne designs, I wanted it to look like a wild Dog Rose so sponged the edges with a pale pink, cut 2 stemens out with my punch, the top layer I trimmed back a bit and finished it off with a pale green pearl. I used a stamp for Stampin Up Mixed Bouquet for the stem, and finished it off with a small piece of green Ribbon, this was layered onto card sponged with the pink. The sentiment was computer generated, which I layer onto white card again sponged with pink. I would welcome criticism as by hearing what other people think I hope I can make improvements to my cardmaking. I will be entering this for these challenges:

Less is More - Pastel colours

Simple Create - Power of flowers

Craft us Crazy - Nature

Little Claires Design - Flower

  5. This is breath taking. The sponging on the edge of the flower and the image panel is just the perfect way to add some pop.
