Blogger Challenge meets Paperbag Studios

My first metal flower and I just had to show it off! Isn't this color metal just beautiful from Ten Seconds Studios!
I'm combining the Blogger Challenge sketch challenge this week with the Paperbag Studios flower challenge, and am excited about the final outcome. I just let the image and the paper speak to me on this one.....and what a beautiful end result I got. I did take the liberty of moving my embellishment to the lower right and instead of a greeting, I added a piece of Tim's tissue tape.

Isn't she beautiful! Thanks for stopping by, don't forget to check out what the rest of the group has done this week, and have a super summer weekend! hugz....

Hi Gerrie~

Wow! I get to be your first comment today! This card is so
GORGEOUS! I wish you had told us how to make that flower unless it is a sworn secret! I love the image itself, and the beautiful coloring! I LOVE-LOVE-Love the flower! I love the fact that you added the black and white tape at the bottom! Great color contrast and sets the era wonderfully!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
