flowers

Hello! Just ignore that eerie green cast around my card:) Apparently the green on my card reflected all over in my light box! The green isn't even that garish, it's much more subtle and springy! I'm not sure how to change that......

Today's card fits three challenges (see below) and was an additional challenge for me. I have this beautiful dp but I find it so hard to create with. The daisy paper is from Egghunt, by Papertrey Ink. The polka dot paper is Polka Dot Parade, also by Papertrey Ink. I've used Papertrey Ink's cardstock, spring moss and summer sunrise, to mat the layers. I love paper piecing this image from Unity and that seemed to pull all the elements together. The top flower is a sticker that I had in my stash.

If you have used these papers before, I would love to see what you've done with them! Just leave a link in your comment for me. Thanks!!:)
