Black + Lime + Flowers


This week, Easter kind of changed the blogland schedule a little bit, so today is the day for a new challenge from Creative Inspirations. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to make a card with black, lime green and flowers.

I used Gabrielle from Kraftin Kimmie stamps (colored with copics). The flowers are made using mulberry paper and nestabilities. I manipulated flat lime ribbon with both machine and hand stitching to form the cute little borders. The paper is Bayberry Cottage from Pink Paislee (which is now in at the Beary Scrap - yay!)

We can't wait to see your creations!

Here are the challenges for this card:
Kraftin Kimmie- punches or die cuts
Sketch Saturday - sketch
Stamptacular Sunday - Sugar and Spice (girly)
Alota - 3,2,1 ( 3 stripes, 2 ribbon embellies, 1 image)
Cupcake Craft Challenges- make your own flower
Pollycraft - anything goes
