Hello sorry about the delay click on Keesha's blog here to read why!
Ok I know that these colours are what you would often use for a boy's card and yes I badly wanted to make a boy's card with buttons and coordinating ribbon etc, but as soon as I grabbed the stamps I thought well that would be a typical Amy card and so I challenged myself to a.....No boy's card with No buttons and well I just couldn't keep to the No ribbon part.
I have been dying to ink up my new stamp set "Petal Pizzazz" and what a treat she is.
In the centre of the middle flower I have used a filigree brad adhered with a Pumpkin Rhinestone Brad just to pizzazz it up some more.
I actually used two different DSP papers for the background, two that I normally wouldn't put together, but it kind of worked, both are from the 'Washington Apple' series.
Don't forget to check out the other design team's entries below..............
Have a great weekend'

Hi Amy,

I must admit boy card is what first sprung to my mind. But you have showed you can make a gorgeous elegant girly one with these colours. Love the filigree brad and of course the ribbon;).
