Card For A Few Challenges

This is my second post today.  I'm back to share a card I made for a few challenges I like to do.  First, it is for The Play Date Cafe Challenge #81.  It is also for the May Sketch For You To Try on Jen Del Muro's blog.  It also fits with this week's Greeting Card Challenge (GC051611) on The Outlawz site which was a recipe challenge to include 2 patterns, 2 flowers and 2 bling, at least.  Finally, it is for the Mix It Up Monday Challenge (STVMONJW1) on StampTV - Focus on Flowers - which was to use either a main image or patterned paper with flowers.  Phew!

Here is the PDCC Inspiration photo:

And here is the May Sketch For You To Try:

Here is my card for all the challenges:

I started with a card base of GKD heavy base weight white CS.  My patterned papers are from the Bo Bunny Alissa and Peacock Lane collections. I stamped the floral wreath from Gina K. Designs Wreath of Wishes with Memento Tuxedo Black onto heavy weight CS and colored with Copic markers.  The sentiment was also stamped onto heavy white CS and popped up.  I added some soft gray satin ribbon and two Bo Bunny flowers. I finished it with gray pearls from Basic Grey in the flower centers and corners.

Thanks for coming by again!  See you tomorrow for more card creations from the Heartfelt Creations Design Team!
