FOSTV Challenge # 17 ~~~

Today at Friends of Speedy TV's challenge is Flowers. You can find a great selection 
of stamp sets at Marks Finest Papers a Heinrich Co. The free set for the 
winner of this weeks challenge is Dogwood Blossoms.
I have used the pansies, butterfly and sentiment from the Today, Tommorw and Always
 set. Don't you just love those little pansies with their sweet little faces
and such a variety of colors and sizes the come in.

 After stamping the pansies twice I decided to go with some bold colors and 
water colored all the images. I cut out
the butterfly and one pansy. The main image was cut with
a  Spellbinder Scalloped Oval then foam  mounted on the Spellbinder
Floral Oval. The front pansy was foam dotted on to add some 
dimension to the image. 
A EK sucess punched border in two colors was added across
 the card. The floral dp was  embossed and stitched then the image 
mounted. A ribbon was hand dyed to match and a 
bow tied. The butterfly was cut out and mounted as
was the sentiment  Small pearls were added to the four flower centers
on the floral die cut. We would love to have you stop over
and join us in this weeks challenge.
