Using Flowers

Once upon a time I would have been the last person in my group to use flowers on I'm the person with the greatest collection of every colour shape and size.  Not that it means I ever have exactly what I want of course.........

No matter......this is my response to our challenge at Opus Gluei to use flowers.  I think the paper is perhaps the first designer piece I bought and I almost didn't want to use it.  On the other hand, you cant keep everything forever.

Once bravely stepping outside the black and white that is my comfort-zone, I have compounded the whole thing by creating the base from a piece of pink (eeeek) card stock. 

There are shiny brads and glittery bits, and even ribbon - if you'e going to step out, you might as well make the step a decent sized one!! 

Better get back to what I do better for next time.


  1. Well, when you put your mind to it, Chat Noir, you are great with colors. Now, I admire your black and white creations because you always make something that is chic and elegant and classic but I also love those occasions when you take a foray into more colors. This card is but one example. Personally, I love the ribbons, brads, and subtle glimmer, it's so happy. THANK YOU taking the color plunge, sure came out beautifully!

    1. ...thanks Rosemary, but I have to say I think I like the next card better. Should have waited and posted it for this challenge instead!!


love to know what you think.......
