Two Challenges.

Close up of home made flower.

Whoo, hoo, I've posted a challenge card!! Not been here for ages what with holidays and then returning to work. I've made a few cards and have made this one at the weekend.

I made this card for my daughter's friend. The image is a Tilda stamp - coloured with Promarkers. She is sitting on a ribbon in which there's a knot (Truly Scrumptious extra) I used My Mind's Eye pink paper for the bp. The background card is Bazzill card which I've distressed around the edges with a craft knife and then inked with Distress inks - Dusty Concorde and Aged Mahogany. I scored some of the card with the knife and I like the effect the ink has in these cuts. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the border and a Wild Orchid Crafts rose in the corner with Martha Stewart punched leaves. I made the flowers on the right hand side using flower shapes which I cut on the Cricut. I inked these with the Distress Inks. I used pearls, stickles and a Cardcraft sentiment to finish. Only thing is it wouldn't go in the envelope!!

I'd like to enter it into two challenges:
