Paper Blooms Challenge #1

Today is the start of the Paper Blooms blog challenges. This week's challenge is both a sketch and color challenge using lavender, green, and white/cream.

One thing I really love about Leah's blooms is that some are already embellished, like the one at the top of my card, and some are unadorned so you can embellish them yourself. I chose to added a punched vellum butterfly and a Dew Drop to mine.

Stop by the Paper Blooms blog to play along with this challenge. If you participate, you'll be eligible to win a set of gorgeous flowers from the Paper Blooms shop.

Stamps: Beautiful You (Verve)
Paper: Pale Plum, Mellow Moss, PTI white, vellum
Ink: Mellow Moss
Accessories: flowers (Paper Blooms), Martha Stewart royal butterfly punch, corner rounder punch, Cuttlebug Houndstooth, Dew Drop (Robin's Nest)
