This is my Smashed Flower BG for May07VSN. When I first read this challenge I thought, ' I wonder if I can get any juice out of artificial flowers' hhmmmmm Me thinks not. The only green on MY thumb is green ink! My flower victim was a piece of coral colored geraniums that I 'borrowed' from my neighbors plant..hee hee don't tell her.
I used shimmery white paper to give it a soft watercolory effect...the flower was colored with marker and misted with water before stamping. The shimmer of the organdy ribbon matches the shimmer of the paper.

It was worth stealing from your neighbor!! tee hee
Beautiful card! (I'm staring at the C/B layer.... wondering..... ''how'd she do that... somehow feed the c/s piece through a scallop punch?''!! GREAT job with the challenge.... and good job not getting caught snitching flower petals and leaves!! :)
