The Card Concept #4

Hi Everyone,

Today, I have a card for this week's Card Concept Challenge - it's all about flowers.

My card:

The card base is Very Vanilla card stock.  The pretty patterned paper is from Bo-Bunny.  A cluster of knitted flowers takes the spotlight on the card.  Luckily, I had some pink yarn left over from another project.  I stamped the stem and leaves from Inspired by Stamping Daisies in Early Espresso ink, and well as the sentiment (SU! Teeny Tiny Wishes).  I wrapped a bit of pink satin ribbon on the bottom of the card, and embellished it with a trio of pearls.  For the final touch, I adhered big pearls on each of the flowers.  I am going to say this is a clean and layered card.

I am also adding this card to the following challenges:

Inspired by Stamping - Monthly Challenge - Flowers
Inspired by Stamping - February Customer Gallery Contest
Seize the Birthday - "Anything Goes" Birthday
The Pink Elephant - Use the color Pink
House of Cards - Photo Inspiration

Thanks for stopping by,
