Cafe Florals

I was really inspired by the colours of this weeks Play Date Cafe Challenge when I saw them and then I went and almost missed the deadline for playing along so I'm squeezing a quick card in before the link closes.....

I die cut the flower (memory box wild blooms) from dusky card stock and rounded the corners.  I stuck magenta and seedling behind to "colour" the flower and drew a dotted line around the flower heads.  I added a greeting (pti) on a fancy cut piece of cardstock - the same I used for the stems.  I added a little strip of white cardstock embossed with leaves to the opposite side of the card  for balance and again rounded the corners.  I tied some ribbon on the diagonal into a simple knot over the stems to finish.


  1. Lovely card and great colours, like the way you have used the die and put the colours behind to create the coloures of your flowers


  2. I bet this is one of your new dies! Gorgeous choice anyhow and love how you've dotted white around the petals.
    Striking way to use the colours :
