Add a flower

The current challenge over at Pan Pastel is to add a flower to your entry - what, just one flower? :)

This is what I made:

I used:

- A6 white card stock

- green paper from Wild Rose Studio's 'Anabelle's Meadow' paper pack

- white card embossed using a Marianne Designables combined embossing and cutting folder

- one single organza flower with stem and leaves from a pack I won fairly recently, from Mei Flowers.

That's it - finito - and it's my first time entering into the Pan Pastel Challenge. It seems a fun challenge - why not go and take a peek? Apparently it's OK to add more than one flower but I took them literally :)



  1. Gorgeous card Di, I especially love the embossed background, its beautiful, Karen xx

  2. Def a 'less is more' card Di. Love it's simplicity.
