The Card Concept #4 - Pink Flowers

Talk about more crazy weather here in the Chicago area!  Rain and thunderstorms all day yesterday.  The good news?  The rain is melting the snow.  The bad news?  The rain is melting the snow!  HAHA!  It's true though.. lots of flooding reported on the news!    I'm ok.  II'm glad to see the snow disappear.  It's been hanging around way too long and snow shouldn't be grey - it should be white if you know what I mean!

Today I'm playing along with The Card Concept.  Take a look at the inspiration photo this time!  Gorgeous isn't it?   That's what I said!  So I didn't change a thing.  A lovely bouquet of pink flowers for you today!  So glad I got this set from Papertrey - it looks just like the flowers in the inspiration photo. 


 Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a great weekend!

Jeanne your card is absolutely gorgeous!
I am so jealous you only got rain from that big storm that hit yesterday. In Minnesota it was rain, then sleet and then snow. It is still coming down but so far I think we added about 10" to what we already have.

Oh...you had just the perfect stamp for this one. Love those beautiful pink blooms and this card.

Just a classic Jeanne card! Love the rich colors in this one (I can't resist a good pink;) The little tag sticking out is the perfect detail:)

Oh brother, grey and yellow snow...my least favorite! I agree. If it can't look like a snowglobe, it shouldn't be there!
Your card is spot on to the inspiration. Beautiful work.
Happy Weekend!!

I can't believe how close your card looks to the inspiration photo Jeanne...beautiful flowers, spot on colors and a delicate doily too. Glad you are finally losing some of the snow!

You couldn't have found a better set for this challenge! Love all your colors. Strawberry Slush looks yummy--great color and I love the name too! Our snow and that awful dirty look is finally gone too--yeah!

Jeanne...wow, your flowers look so real, I think I can smell them here. They are so beautiful and that embossed background is the perfect way to show case these gorgeous beauties!

This is beautiful Jeanne, what gorgeous floral images, and such a pretty shade of pink.

Joyce said...

Oh, Jeanne--this is so gorgeous. And, the perfect flower for this challenge. It's on my mental list to do this challenge, and that was the flower I was going to use. Now, I can just say I copied you. Loving all that pink. P.S. could you send some of that water over to us in CA--we are in a terrible drought.
