Primrose Garden

Today is the last day of my 4-day Easter Weekend and it's back to work tomorrow!  I'm trying to get in a few more cards before real life intervenes so here is a card which covers several challenges.  The sketch comes from Fab Friday, the colors from Dynamic Duos and the tic-tac-toe challenge at Paper Players.



I chose the pink/green, pearls and birthday squares in the tic-tac-toe grid.  The green I used with Primrose Petals is Old Olive.  The leaves, flowers and banner are all raised up on dimensionals and it's all offset against a Very Vanilla background.

Thanks for looking.




Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps:  Secret Garden; Memorable Moments
Cardstock:  Very Vanilla; Primrose Petals
Ink:  Primrose Petals; Old Olive
Accessories:  Secret Garden framelits; Finishing Touches edgelits; Basic Pearls

Edited to Add:  This card was chosen for an Honorable Mention at Dynamic Duos this week.

Cheers
Karren

Karren, greatway to combine the challenges! Your card is fabulous, I love the fact that you clustered the flowers together starting at the top of the card and the fact that you popped them. The little pearls are the perfect finishing touch.
So glad you joined my challenge at the Paper Players this week
