Bouquet of Flowers

I know, I know.....it's Friday and I don't have a "Funny Friday" again.....um...maybe next week!
I was over at Margaret's blog (Black Shadow Creations) the other day and she had entered her scrap book page (which is fabulous!)  in a challenge that I'd never seen before called Simply Stampin'.  They have a sketch challenge this week and I really liked the sketch.....so you get a card made for this challenge instead of a Funny Friday.  Be sure and pop over to their blog and check out the sketch.  The challenge at Ooh-la-la Creations is themed "Thank You" and I'll also enter it in their challenge


I used a couple of SU images on here - Simply Soft for the image and Watercolor Trio for the sentiment.  Just about all the supplies used on this card are from SU.  I did a little sponging around the edges with some distressed ink and colored the flowers with Copics.   The ribbon got a little wonky on one side - but hey, what can I say....it just seemed to flop down as I took the photo!  The pink background was embossed with the Stripes folder but you can just barely see that in the photo.  I'm just about to give up on photographing any card that has pink on it!!!  Everything looks so washed out in the photos!

Anyway, thanks for stopping by...............and have a great weekend!

I don't think this looks washed out at all. I love the way you used two sprigs of flowers, your wonderful coloring, the tiny pearl centers the bow and colors.

Your watercolouring is perfect! I'm so jealous, I can never seem to get it right. Your photo looks fab to me, we are always our own worst critic I think.
Thanks for joining us at Simply Stampin, hope to see you again soon!

It's a beauty Lynn! Love the spring colors!! No worries about the ribbon! Would probably get mushed a little during mailing!

I'm about to give up on my photo's too since they all look blurry to me when I upload them on my blog :(

Have a great weekend!

I like the sketch and I'd be playing along if I wasn't working on so many other things! I love the colors on this card, and those fonts are just GORGEOUS! The sentiment lends such a graceful feel to those pretty flowers! NJ!

Melissa said...

This is so pretty, Lynn!! Love the little pearl centers on the delicate flowers! Ribbon gives me so much grief. By the time I finally tie and acceptable bow, I'm usually exhausted, let alone trying to get all parts of the finished bow to stay where I want them to! :o) Too bad I like ribbon. I'm just simply bow impaired.

Ooooh, lovely pink and green is a firm fave combo of mine and you've made such a soft and pretty card!
Thanks so much for joining us at Simply Stampin' this week and I really hope we'll see you playing along with us again very soon!

Margaret said...

Awww... You're so sweet! So glad to help you find another challenge site too!
Your card is beautiful! Your lovely flowers go perfectly with the DSP strip (one of my favorites & I still have some hoarded away!) and I really like the embossed stripes!

Tammy said...

Beautiful Lynn! There is nothing washed out about the pink, maybe its the difference in monitors!

Angie said...

Anne Temple said...

Gorgeous card! Love the color combo and I don't think the pink looks washed out either.

Darlene said...

Very sweetly done!! So fresh and Spring-like too! Adorable image and cute DP across the bottom really shows off the sentiment. Really great card!

How very elegant, Lynn, love the soft shades her. And the paper is so pretty too. Love it's clean look. Hope you and DH are doing well. I was away to Singapore and shopped bags and bags of crafting goodies.

Lynn, your card is soft and beautiful. Love the pastel color scheme!

Gorgeous Lynn, love the pink!
What a coincidence because just this morning I picked this set out as a hostess gift I'm getting. Those little pears aree the perfect embellie and I like how you've tied the bouquet together with the bow .

Becky said...
