Time to play!!!

I have a quick share for you today before the mad rush of the week.  I made this card to enter into a few challenges:
by the cute and girly:  cute and girly
All sorts:  Blooming blossoms
Sketchy colors:  Sketch
Creatalicious:  two tone
Crafty pad:  Flowers
I have used Tilda with Amryllis, i dont even think this stamp has seen ink and i have had her for ages, sad i know!  She is available from Magnolia-licious where you will get great service, with a smiles, stamp number 3062.  Colored with copics, sorry i didnt take note of my colors, duh!
Now this is where some of my inspiration came from:  If you havent visited Amazing paper grace You are missing out BIG TIME!  this lady has the most professional looking cards that i have ever seen, they may not have Maggies or colored images, but they are so elegant and beautifully put together and she has amazing ideas to share, well worth the visit.  I followed her tutorial for the floral centres and decided there was nothing stopping me from using the same idea on the centre of my ribbon.
I added a touch of vintage lace to one of my layers and called my card DONE!
have a great week
