Cute Card Thursday Challenge - Floral Frenzy

It's week two of my GDT stint with the Cute Card Thursday DT and this week's challenge theme is "Floral Frenzy".

I chose this cute image by Kanban for my card, she's such a sweetie and I think these lovely pastel shades are just perfect for her.  She's coloured with a mixture of Copics and Promarkers.  I wonder who her bouquet of flowers might be for? 

The image layer was cut using a spellbinders nestabilities die and I inked the layer, whilst it was still in the die, using Spun Sugar Distress Ink, although it does look more beige in the picture!

Using a Martha Stewart punch I created two strips of flowers which I coloured using Promarkers before adding over a background layer of paper from the Papermania Henbury Lane pack.  I used another sheet from the same pack which is a slightly darker pink for the square behind the image layer.  I then punched small flowers from both papers and added these on the 'bubbles' around the edge, putting faux pearls in the centre of each using a Waco pearl pen. 

I look forward to seeing your creations for this challenge, I found the floral theme was a refreshing change from all the Christmas cards I've been making recently!  Just add a link to your project on the Cute Card Thursday blog and myself and the DT will stop by and check it out.  Good Luck!
