Pretty Patterned Paper challenge

The Friday challenge on Embellish-It is to make a card inspired by pretty patterned paper. Here is what I made for this challenge: We would love for you to come and play along with us. Remember to put in the key word FC22 when you upload your project. Please let me know in this post if you played along.

I had originally planned for this to be more fall colors, but then found this pretty paper by My Mind's Eye in my stash and decided to use it. The buttons and flower are inspired by the colors in the paper. Then when I found out that SU!'s Groovy Guava and Blush Blossom matched the paper perfectly, I went with it!

So easy to make. I just stamped the flower and sponged! The center of the flower is stamped and sponged again and raised with a pop dot.This card was inspired by one I saw in a CTMH catalog. I used the same layout and flower idea (my flower is from Lizzie Anne Designs) and loved the use of buttons.
