Let Us Begin

I finally had time to work on a card that I've been wanting to make since Monday.  However, finalizing the semester grades needed to be finished first!  I was very glad to have them entered and proofed before school started this morning.

For the Basic Grey Challenge 36, we were to use flowers.  You know how I love flowers!  :)  I took my color combo from CR84FN 12 to use light pink, lavender, and kraft, and at ODBD, SLC 45 was a sketch based on Angie's fabulous card.


 Here's my card.

All of the dp I used were from Basic Grey's "Euphoria" line.  Each of them has a flower design.  I went further with the flower theme by adding mini Recollections roses along with one large Recollection rose.  The bow is seam binding tied with a Bow Easy.  I used the kraft paper as the mats which were cut with Nesties and a MS doily lace edge punch.  The sentiment is from ODBD's "Let Us Begin."

Here's one more look.  The edges of the sentiment are sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  This card is 6" square.

Thanks for stopping by!

ETA:  My card was chosen to receive a Shining the Light Award!  Thank you, ODBD!
