For You

This card combines 4 challenges:
  1. Whiff of Joy Challenge #41 - Floral
  2. Simon Says Challenge - Distressing
  3. Pile it On: Challenge #9- use at least three flowers on your project (and of course, at least one other current challenge from anywhere else in blogland)
  4. and finally Sketch Saturday: Sketch #62

I used Willow with Flowers from Whiff of Joy and coloured her with distress inks. Then I distressed the background with Tattered Rose. I mounted my DP on pink/blue cardstock and followed the sketch. Then I added some primas and some flowers I cut using the cricut and the George & Basic Shapes cart. I added some adhesive pearls to the centre of the flowers, and around the card. Using the silent setter I made 2 holes at the side of the image, threaded some ribbon though and tied a bow. I finished it off by adding a little "for you" sentiment by Studio G.

Ingredients: Papers: PM Blueberry Hill & PM Cardstock
Image: Whiff of Joy - Willow with
Sentiment: Studio G
Tools: Silent Setter, Cricut Expressions.
Distress Inks, Adhesive Pearls, Ribbon.
