Becky's "Compose a Card" challenge 4

I am so glad I was able to get another card done this week for Becky's challenge. It is great to be storing up a variety of cards for future use! Here are the details for this week's card:




I REALLY loved  this color combo and pretty much stayed true to her design.  I did not have a negative stamp (guess I need to fix that!) so I just stamped on black cardstock with Fresh Snow ink. I made the flower following Dawn McVey's tutorial here. I used regular printer paper, stamped it with Text Style II and then went over the pieces with Smokey Shadow ink. I also used some Ripe Avocado ribbon to make leaves.





Thanks so much for looking!
