Papertrey May Blog Hop: Flowers!

Flowers! I love flowers! I often put flowers on cards, so I can't wait to see what others have done...

I had very little time today, so went with an almost instant card- a rose rub-0n. I framed it with Framed, then put some Primas down the side (I love Prima flowers, too!!), and Papertrey's leaf ribbon. It's set on a Papertrey die cut doily, both the doily and the rose frame were edged with New Leaf ink. After that they got layered on a piece of rose flowers from Basic Grey. The base card and the doily are Berry Sorbet, as is the ribbon. Three matching pearls, and voila! Done!


Looking at it through the lens, I think I will add a wee butterfly on the upper right edge of the rose- do you think??

What a great idea! The rub-on really matches the patterned paper very well--nice patterns and textures!

I really like the brightness of the doily in Berry Sorbet, sets off your main image so well. Nicely done!

Beautiful!! I love the primas and how you tied them together with the vine ribbon. The colours are fantastic too. Oh, and I adore how you inked the doily with green - how cool is that!?!

Lovely, soft colors on this. And yes, I think a butterfly would be a sweet addition to an already sweet card.
