Dawn's most recent challenge stretched me a bit. I'm not a huge fan of cream with bright colors (I'd rather use a crisp white), but I really like how my card turned out. I hope you do, too.
I traced a big Maya Road flower onto Raspberry Fizz cardstock, then cut it out. It took me a while to get the center just right--lots of experiments later, and this is what won out. The ribbon's knot is the center of the flower, and I tucked in some cut pieces of ribbon for the "tails". You can't tell I cheated, right? :) I also don't have Vintage Cream ink, so I used Fresh Snow and pounced it with a little bit of yellow chalk pastel to soften the brightness.
Also, Melissa is giving away some great blog candy...Check it out!
