Blooming Fun!

     I try to do Little Red Wagon's Challenge whenever I can, and this week it is #342, Blooming Fun.  It says to use flowers all different ways, including floral paper and embellishments.  That is exactly what I did.  I started with a kraft base, added a scrap of a pretty floral designer paper from my bin, and added 2 rows of a soft plaid, satin ribbon to break it up.  My large embellishment is a gift from my dear friend Carol, and is made by Prima.  My sentiment are Tim Holtz word dies and I inked them with Distress Ink for a faded look.

     I see sun outside, so this may be a good day.  The gloomies have had everyone in a funk!  If you took the time to visit, I appreciate it.

You've done a great job with that big flower - something I would never have the foresight to create. I love the distressed sentiment - what a great look! Enjoy the sunshine!

That background paper is absolutely gorgeous! The flower embellishment goes perfect with it too and I love the plaid ribbon.
