Pink and Brown

With so many great ideas on the many, many blogs, how will I ever get my own cards done?  I just spent an hour reading just some of the organizational tips at The Paper Boutique.  I'm glad I got a few made ahead.  This one is for the Freshly Made challenge.



I liked this paper with it's leaf-covered vines, so thought I'd use it for this sketch.  The base card is pink which I inked to give it a softer edge. The pink border and little flowers were punched and the leaf cut by hand. I used a stamp for the sentiment, bending it to fit the curve of the leaf. Some pearls made great centers for the flowers that are popped up on foam.  This is the second card I've made with the pink and brown combination.  I love it!
