For today's sketch challenge, SC270, and for this week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge FTTC56 to use scallops (the border punches I used).
I've not made St. Patrick's Day cards in the past, but having this wonderful Flourishes Irish Blessings set has spurred me to do so this year!! I'll send these to my parents, sister, and aunts as a note to just say hi in a few weeks. I think the green schemes are cheery and just what they'll need to wish their yards into spring life!!
My three panels of DP were all stamped. I colored in the bouquet by sponging on Versamark ink (masking the rest out) and daubing on Stampin' Pastels in Glorious Green with the poppin' pastels technique. I popped up one flower in the middle of the bouquet and used Think Pink Fun Flock on the three flower centers and the three buttons on the pink wrap.
The paper flower was punched from pages of a vintage book. This isn't the best paper flower I've seen. Does anyone know a good tutorial? I'd like to do better with these!!
Happy Wednesday and thanks for looking!

Emily, this is wonderful!!!! LOVE the bouquet and your print flowers.

You say it isn't the best paper flower you have ever seen but that is exactly what my eye went to immediately. It was so unique that I stared at it for awhile before I read how you did it. I think your card is so pretty.
