Inspired by Crabapple Blossoms ~


I just love looking outside my windows in the back of my house -- my whole view is filled with those pink flowers. And as you all probably know, my favorite color is pink! So with today's SCS Ways To Use It Challenge, I was inspired by my pink flowers (see the post from earlier today for pictures) to make this card:

We were to use pleats or ruffles in our creations, and I pleated a paper rosette inspired by my crabapple tree blossoms. I also heated my organdy ribbon to create a ruffled look there. I hope you like it!

Stamps: Happy Harmony
Paper: Whisper White, Pink Striped DP by Crafts, Etc., Lovely Lilac POP DP
Ink: Lovely Lilac
Accessories: Prima, white brad by The Paper Studio, lavender organdy ribbon, dimensionals, heat gun, Swiss Dots CB EF

Thanks for coming by!
