Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge #10

This is my second post today.  I'm back with a quick post to share the card I made for the Weekly Challenge on Joan's Gardens' blog.  This week, the challenge had the following requirements:
- use pink and green
- create a thank you card
- use stripes somewhere on the card
- use something scalloped

Here is my card for the challenge:

I started with a base card of GKD Pure Luxury Fresh Asparagus and layered with GKD Innocent Pink. The striped patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Green At Heart 6x6 pad. The floral image is from the JustRite set, Breath of Spring.  I colored it with Copics and highlighted with Spica pens.  The sentiment and frame are from the Gina K. Designs set, Fanciful Tags and they are mounted on one of the Spellbinders Fancy Tags die cuts.  My scalloped element is the Spellbinders Scalloped Oval.  I added Liquid Pearls to the flower centers and the scalloped frame.  A Kraft taffeta bow and some Queen & Co. adhesive pearls finished my card.

Have a great evening!  See you soon!
