Crepe Paper Flowers

Focus of this card that I made for a challenge by Linda at Stamp TV  and for the challenge at Joan's Gardens are the crepe paper flowers that I made.
Cut the petals for the flowers using Spellbinders Blossom die and inserted brads in center to hold together. Cut leaves with a Sizzix die. Placed the flowers and leaves on a precut oval that I had left from a scrapbook project. Put this on a white mat that I decorated the corners with a punch. Following a sketch from Sweet Sunday which I turned on the side, I stamped a sentiment on one rectangle and a "Lace" Paper on another.  Assembled card and added some pearls.

Challenges:
Joans Gardens:  Make a pink and white card, and be sure you have 4 corners punched preferrably with a Martha Stewart Punch-- if you don't have any, you can substitute something else.
Stamp TV Blast Challenge: Make your own Flowers and give us at least three flowers on your project.
Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge: Make your own embellishments.
Sweet Sunday Sketch:  Shown to right
Stamp Something: Be inspired by the photo. I was inspired to make a birthday card with pink.
