Elphine House Australia Challenge #60

Hi there!  Happy Wednesday (at least in Brisbane, it is!)!  Hope you are having a good week so far!  My week is off to a busy start, but I hope it will quiet down a little toward the end of the week.  Anyway, it's for another Elphine House Australia Challenge and I am here with my DT post for the challenge. The theme this time is "punched/handmade flowers".  We want to see handmade flowers on your project.  No store-bought flowers allowed! 

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Sage Shadow and the patterned papers are from the Echo Park Victoria Garden 6x6 pad.  The sweet image is Katrina My Sister Shasha from Elphine House Australia.  I stamped it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I made two simple pink roses out of light cardstock using Heartfelt Creations flower dies.  A chevron-striped ribbon bow, a tiny metal heart charm and a few pink pearls finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Elphine House Australia blog and check out the beautiful creations from Lynda and Julie.  We hope you will play along!  You must use an Elisabeth Bell image (any company).  You have until Tuesday, August 19th, Brisbane time to enter.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Card Mania Challenge (add a charm)
Love to Create Challenge #124 (petals and pearls)

Have a wonderful evening and see you soon!
