♥ Every flower that ever bloomed... ♥

Here is my second card for the day! I created this one using this week's sketch over at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge blog, Priscillastyles. (Hi Priscilla! I missed ya!) And I also used the fabulous color challenge from the Play Date Cafe. Not my usual color choice and I was a little unsure of them at first. But that's what challenges are for, right? And, I must admit, I really like the colors together!
I used some papers by Fancy Pants Designs and October Afternoon, as well as a Melissa Farcnes rub-on, Prima flower, orange ribbon, pearls and that beautiful green vine is from Flourish with a Bling.
Here is the fun MM Sketch:
And the gorgeous Play Date Cafe Inspiration photo:
Have a wonderful night!
