Paper Blooms Triple Play

This week's Paper Blooms challenge is to use at least 3 flowers on your project. I chose a mixture of pinks--one came furnished with a pink button and twine, and I added green buttons to the other two. My card base is actually SU dp, but it's cardstock weight (thanks to Chloe for the idea).

Wanna play along? Come on, I know you've got plenty of flowers in your stash! Just link your finished project to the Paper Blooms blog. You do NOT need to own any Paper Blooms to play along, but if you've got some, we'd love to see 'em. I'm looking forward to all the fabulous creations!

Be sure to stop by tomorrow...I'll be revealing my card for round 2 of the 2S4Y Ultimate Card Showdown!

Stamps: Sunny Hello (Hero Arts)
Paper: Kiwi Kiss textured, Whisper White, SU dp
Ink: Kiwi Kiss
Accessories: crocheted flowers (Paper Blooms), buttons (Oriental Trading Co.)
