One card - Two Challenges

Today's card is for this weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge which is a great sketch by Katharina. It also fulfills the Ooh-La-La Challenge which is Flower Power. The cardstock is from Papermania, it is 12 x 12 and beautifully textured and pearlised. I bought it from our new craft shop in Shetland. I made an A5 card from the cardstock and teamed it with Joanna Sheen's beautiful Gold Mirri Silk card. I cut out the flower and text mounts with my oval Nestabilities. I made the flower spray by following the great instructions by Sandra Miles on the Tuition and Advice page on Joanna Sheens website. Unfortunately I don't have any of the green sticky tape recommended, so to cover the stalks of the flowers I used some gold chiffon ribbon and added a bow. The ribbon again came from Joanna Sheen. The flowers and pearl sprays I have had for a long time but for the life of me I can't remember where I got them. Joanna sells the same flower on her web site but it is in pink. I do hope you like my card and many thanks for stopping by. Beryl x
