This design served triple duty -- I used it in a WOW! swap for the summer mini, I used it for my Serenity Sisters Downline Swap, and I stepped it up here for the Creative Crew challenge for June. (Can you believe I made 30 of different variations of these?? !!)
The Creative Crew challenge was to use any flower except stamped flowers! For the challenge card, I used a 3D technique I learned from Andrea W. in Canada. For the initial WOW! card, I did use a stamped image.
Hope you join in the Creative Crew challenge this month to incorporate flowers into your project -- any flower that is, except a stamped flower! Then upload with keywords : CCREW0611CF, CreativeCrew

Very lovely card. You did a great job with the execution. Everything just balances out so perfectly! Don't you just love putting pearls between the scallops of that border punch. I think they were created just for that ;-)

Oh, Lela, this one is so stunning! I love how it is a such a bright, cheery, and also very elegant floral card. One that it isn't TOO bright, kwim? Pairing it with Blushing Bride & Pink Pirouette was a wonderful plan, pulled together with the pearls, and white satin ribbon. Very eye pleasing Lela. I know that my mother would have LOVED your card here, and that says much more than I am able to. Such a beauty Lela - WOW!
