Kitchen Sink Stamps Challenge #16

The challenge over at the Kitchen Sink Blog is being presented by guest hostess Emilia who challenges us to decorate the corners. I only had room to decorate one corner on my card since I made the floral image so large! I used some wasabi green cardstock and some PTI bitty box basics dsp for this one. I used the Lilies set for the flowers, and the Hibiscus set for the sentiment. I tore the edges of the dsp and ran my ink pad down the edges for a little distressing. The corner is a diecut I made with my Quickutz and the circles were cut with my Nestabilities. The ribbon is a precious scrap of retired Wasabi that's been waiting for the perfect card to place it on, and I think it works with this card. The pearls are by Kaiser and they're called Blush.
Thanks for stopping by today, and I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
