The Card Concept Challenge #4 - Use a floral theme on your card.

Hi Everyone, welcome to another Card Concept Challenge. This time, we are asking you to use a floral theme on your card.  As flowers are probably the most popular image used on cards, I am predicting a bumper crop in the gallery for this challenge.

Have a look at the gorgeous inspiration image. So pretty.


For my card, I imagined looking down on the vase/jar, focusing on the rim, the flower layers and the grey/green foliage. 
I love the wood 'Happiness' from Prima, the stitched circle dies from Lil' Inker, the Stitched File Folder & Index Card Dies from My Creative Time, and of course the Funky Floral stamp set /Notched Flowers die set from Papertrey Ink. The sentiment is from SSS and the wool leaves are die cut from my hand dyed wool.
To finish, I added a little twine and some pearls and sequins.



Inks: Hero Arts
Card: Kaiser and Neenah white

Do hop over to The Card Concept Challenge Blog to see the gorgeous cards created by the other design team members.
That's it from me.
Enjoy creating for this challenge over the next two weeks.
