Coral and red and olive oh my!! Nancy's combination had my head spinning momentarily, then I relized that it was the perfect combination for a two-toned amaryllis. I used the FTTC challenge to use the negative for a double-challenge card. Check out FTTC on the Flourishes blog: http://flourishes.org/blog/
Stamped the flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics and framed with the embossed panel. Matted with olive and added the ribbon and jute (I wish that I could tie my twine like Bridget Finlay!) using some Glossy Accents to hold it in place. Added the corner gems and a bird for dessert, mounted on a 4.5" square Flourishes card and done. PT - 1
Thanks to my friend Nancy and to Cheryl for the inspiration. Thank you all for looking and have a peaceful day.

Wow is this ever spectacular! I love your amaryllis and the super beautiful ribbon and twine treatment. Gorgeous photo as well!
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
