Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #48.

I thought that the friendly flowers set would be a great set to own. I've found that it's been quite challenging to create a card with this set and wanted to rename it Not So Friendly Flowers. I've tried on a couple of occasions and was quite disappointed. Beate's sketch this weekend may have just made it possible. Beate's challenges have been great in stirring up my creativity. Check out her blog here

I started by making my own designer paper with all three flower images. The dots around the tempting turquoise were made with the fine point of the chocolate chip marker and the piercing tool template. The chocolate ribbon goes all the way around the turquoise cardstock and comes out underneath the punched out flower and through it.

Stamps: Friendly Flowers

Cardstock: Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Choclate Chip, Tempting Turquoise, Really Rust

Ink: Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Craft White

Accessories: Ribbon, Brads, Circle Punch, Piercing Template, Nestabilities Rectangle and Scalloped Rectangle

Great job! Some stamps look great but are difficult to use, as you said, but I really like what you've done.
