A Triple Challenge

My card today meets 3 different challenges. First is the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge FTTC 35 which is to extend your creation out of the frame. The next is the Midnight Madness sketch challenge MMSC#21 . Last is the CC238 color challenge to use Pretty in Pink, Basic Grey, and Sage Shadow. The main image is the Sweet Pea by Flourishes, stamped twice on wc paper, and several of the blooms were cut out and popped up on foam tape. The image is layered on the Nestabilities petite oval and a labels 4 diecut, using Sage Shadow, Heritage Grey & Pretty in Pink. The base layer is embossed with the leafy branch ef and layered with Sage Shadow die cuts again using the Labels 4 and stamped with the swirls from the Sweet Pea set in Basic Grey ink. I used a pair of scalloped scissors to notch the top two corners of the main image. The sage and pink ribbons were layered and a Bow-Easy was used to make the bow. The flower in the center is actually a piece of glittered bobbin ribbon, with a pink gemstone in the center. I used Tombow markers and a wet brush to color the image.
I wish you all a wonderful Tuesday and thank you for spending a little of your day with me today :)
