Crafty Secrets Friendship and Flowers

I made this card for the Crafty Secrets Challenge I am co hosting at Paper Craft Planet.  The challenge is Flowers,  please stop by and see what the other Crafty Secrets lovers have made.  I found this fun challenge site on my  friend Mona's blog, it is called
2 Sketches 4 You  it is hosted by Kazan Clark and Laura Davis.  I used their fab sketch to make this card, I'm not sure if I can post their sketch here, so you will have to go check it out.  I would also like to enter this into the Let your Garden Grow challenge to make  DIY flowers at Quixotic Challenges.  I actually bought the lovely little pearl centers for my flowers at Quixotic Paperie, and I am in love with them.  And last but not least my friends at Order of the Opus Gluei are hosting a challenge to use ribbon in a different way.  This is a 5 x 7 card, I used Memory Botique cs, Crafty Secrets Friendship and Flowers image, velvet ribbons and rhinestone lace are from JoAnns.  I embossed the cs with Cuttlebug A2  Japanese Scales embossing folder, I cut the flowers with Cricut Pagoda, colored them in with Niji Pearlescent Watercolor Set and set Quixotic Flat Backed Pearls - 4mm - Cappucino - in the centers.  Thanks for looking, ~Diane
