It's time for some flowers for this week's Monkey Challenge. The crocuses are blooming in my yard and hopefully it won't be long before the daffodils, tulips, hyacinths and lilies follow suit! This week's challenge over at A La Card Monkey (number 99 and counting - only one more week to Blog Candy!) is Flowers + sketch. Here's the sketch:
For my card, I started with a Crumb Cake base, added Tea Party DSP inside and out. Trimmed it in pink to pick up the pink in the DSP. The flower is from the Goody Goody Gumdrop set. I stamped it first in Early Espresso, then colored the stem and leaves with Old Olive, the petals with Bashful Blue and outlined the whole thing with Certainly Celery. The sentiment is also stamped with Bashful Blue and then punched with the Decorative Label punch. BB was also sponged around the edge of the image and the sentiment. I added some Vintage Flowers, a yellow pearl in the center of the flower and a pink grosgrain ribbon to complete the card.
