Flower Challenge

Poppystamps is having a flower challenge, you can read all about it HERE.  I went looking through my dies and I can't hardly believe but of all their dies that I have this is my only flowers.  All the rest of my flowers are from Memory Box.

My cardmaking group is also doing a color challenge of Aqua, so that is what took me into this direction for this card. I couldn't find cardstock in the right color so I used my Spectrum marker BT4 to color the cardstock before cutting out with my die.

 I also used Poppystamps Eyelet stitches die for the bottom border of the card, using the largest border die and then using the smallest in the set I cut out a strip for the center of the card.  The sentiment was once again done with the My Favorite things sentiment stamps.

Poppystamps -- Stitched Bloom trio, Eyelet Stitches and Pinpoint Main street tags dies
Cosmo Cricket -- Everafter paper
My Favorite things -- Label maker sentiment stamp set
Recollection-- Pearls
Hole punch for tag

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by, and saying Hi :)
Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead!

Very nice. I wouldn't have thought to colour the paper with markers to achieve the colour you needed. Clever lady! I do like the scalloped bottom.

Those are some super cute flowers! These days I'm nuts about anything stitchy. I love how you used the two-sized borders, too, which really brings it all together. Pretty!
