Pot Of Flowers


Orange and purple isn't a usual colour combo for me to use, but I love how they went together on this card! 

Image is Stamping Bella, coloured with Copics and accented with Stickles and Spica pens.

Patterned papers are Basic Grey, and image and mat were cut with Nestabilities.  I machine stitched around the largest panel.

Edges were inked with VersaColor Boysenberry ink, Ribbon is from my stash, and pearls are Prima.

Challenges:

Allsorts : Free and Easy July

Simon Says Stamp : A Stitch In Time


Fab 'n' Funky : Purple Haze

Charisma Cardz : Flowers

Blogabella : Ribbon

Totally Papercrafts : Bingo (diecuts, embossing-heat, ribbon)

The design of this card is just fantastic! I love how you threaded the ribbon into your image and the different Nestie shapes you combined. You did an awesome job with the color scheme too. Orange isn't always easy. LOL Thanks so much for joining us this week at Papercraft Star!
