Stampin B's Design Team--Funky Vintage

This week, Vicki Dutcher gave the Stampin B's challenge to use a flower. So, we'd like to see those beautiful blooms. Just use the inlinkz tool to upload your card. My card was very simple this week but I rather like it. I am using some paper called Funky Vintage and added my flower. I had to cut a good bit on my flower because the outer petals were really large and wouldn't fit the card. I stamped my sentiment on a die cut shape from Iron Orchid Designs, Creative Imaginations called 'Beloved' and I think it is so pretty. Then, I added pearls and I'm through..easy peasy.

I'm entering my card into these challenges:
A Spoon Full of Sugar-#140-Birthday Wishes
If the Shoe Fits...Scrap It!- #67- Happy Birthday challenge


Recipe:
Stamps: Mark's Finest Papers-Hearts, Hearts, Hearts
Paper: Stampin'Up! Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip, Making Memories Embellishment Paper-Funky Vintage-Lizzie Collection (Geometric Flower)
Accessories: Iron Orchid Designs-Creative Imaginations'Beloved' die cut shapes, blue pearls

I never would have thought to pair these colors and patterns together, but they look wonderful, especially with that lovely flower accent! I really like those tiny pearls in the corner too! So pretty!!

Your "altered" flower is so pretty on that "funky" paper! What a great color combination, one I would never have thought of!

I'm totally loving that vintage looking die cut where you've placed your sentiment. Where did you get it?
