Another Just Add Ink challenge, which this week was a inspiration challenge. Using this photo we had to create something. It could have been the theme, colour or anything else that could be thought up. I decided I'd go with the colours and add a couple of flowers too.
So now after a few attempts I decided to create a flower based card, but that somehow incorporated the red and white strips and I think these are the real stand outs in the photo. I folded and folded until I worked out a cute bouquet wrapping, just like we all get when we're lucky enough to get - or buy fresh flowers. To make the strips I actually cut 5mm strips of real red cardstock and then evenly spaced and glued them onto a piece of whisper white. The flowers are made using the large scallop circle, which I then cut slighty before adding one of the smaller flowers from the Boho Blossoms punch. I popped brads in to make the centres, added ribbon and a couple of rhinestones. I have purposly not added a sentiment as I am yet to decide on whether this will end up a Mother's Day card or a birthday card.
So here it is - let me know what you think.
