Paper Blooms Challenge #5 and CBCC #36
I made this card for my very dear friend Denise who is my mentor. She introduced me the joy of creating cards. She has two Cocker Spaniels who are her "babies", so Casey and Pepper are going to give her a Special One of a Kind Mother's Day card! I designed the card with the China pattern inspiration piece for Paper Blooms' Wednesday Challenge. I chose SU Raspberry Tart (just love the colors!) and River Rock cs. I made paper lace and ribbon which I covered in a sheer Dusty Rose organza ribbon from Michael's The Prima flowers blend in the color the center being a Rose Dew Drop from Robin's Nest. Vanilla Hardware, frames the Designer Label stamp and punch from SU. The Raspberry Tart paper has Kiwi stems, but I really like the balance of the River Rock with the dsp better.
Having just seen Courtney's challenge to use flowers anywhere on your card, I thought "gee I just did that." So here is my entry for your challenge Courtney!
