Welcome to the #175
May Flowers Challenge at The Card Concept!
I love this beautiful floral arrangement and was
inspired by the colors in the challenge photo to create a Mixed Media card.
As I have mentioned in previous posts, I have a
personal goal to create cards using stamps and supplies that I already own (and
have not inked up in a while) as well as a card for each of the over 900 Splitcoaststampers’
Sketch Challenges (I was able to incorporate Sketch #SC362 into the design of
create this card:

to the top of the background panel (per the sketch).

stamp over the background panel and the designer paper.

the ends of the ribbon behind the panel.
