Flowers Everywhere!

Greetings!  This is my very first card created in my new home, from my new art studio.  I finally found my paper cutter in the middle of the night last night in another room of the house!  It really felt good to get inky again, though a bit uncomfortable as I try to relearn where all my supplies are in my new space.  This card is for the challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu where the challenge theme for the Pink Team is "Flowers."  The flowers can be a focal point, an embellishment, the background, or whatever you like.  I chose to use them as my background.  The large flower is by Paper Artsy and was stamped with Black Archival Ink.  The smaller gold flowers were embossed with Gold Embossing Paste and a stencil, both by Wendy Vecchi.  The focal image by Tim Holtz was stamped several times, trimmed and pieced together using Archival Ink.  The edges were distressed lightly with Distress Ink.  A simple black and white piece of twine was fashioned into a bow at the top of the card. Thanks so much for stopping by and for all your kind comments.  I hope you will stop over to EE to see all the beautiful inspiration pieces by the Pink Team and then share a piece of your own with us.  Best, Yvonne

That is great that you have a craft room in your new place and found your cutter:) I love this card. It is funky and reminds me a bit of Terry Gilliam of Monty Python fame:)
