Friends are Flowers

This is a card that I made for the Designing D.I.V.A.S. Secret Sister challenge. The challenge was to use flowers on a card, actually I think it was to use as many flowers as possible. I am just so not good at using a lot of embellishments. I admire the cards with lots of flowers and embellies, but when I do it I just think it looks all wrong. So I used Basic Grey Sultry for my flowers, and added some ribbon and a butterfly accented with pearls. I embossed the pink paper with the Cuttlebug swiss dot folder and matted it onto Raspberry Fizz, then matted the whole thing onto Papertrey white cardstock. I used the arch lattice punch to make a border on the patterned paper. The sentiment is from the Garden of Life set by Papertrey and is stamped in Raspberry Fizz ink. I used Raspberry Fizz swiss dot ribbon tied in a bow with a white vintage button tied with floss to finish my card. I see in the photo that I created something on the inside as well, but for the life of me I cannot remember what I did and I didn't take a picture of the inside. Shame on me. Thanks for stopping by.

Have a blessed day!
