Three Clover Designs Challenge 13

Wow... it's been a while since I've been able to participate in one of the great challenges at Three Clovers! I'm still working on teacher thank you gifts since there's a measly week of school left! This weeks challenge to use flowers was perfect!

The color scheme came from the ribbon that I used on the card. I've been organizing my ribbon the last two nights. I came across this ribbon that I had cut to use on a previous project and never did, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to use it with this challenge.

The papers are plain colored papers from Paper Studio. I ran the lighter yellow through my Cuttlebug in an embossing folder. I stamped some little blue flowers on the plain white, but that was a bit too bold, so I adhered vellum to it to soften it up just a tad. I cut the sentiment with my Cricut and propped it up there using thick adhesive. Add pretty yellow flowers (part of the Spare Parts line by paper studio) with a blue brad and be sure to ink/distress the edges and viola! Cute little card for a teacher.

The candle is a left over from my Christmas craft show. It's just a plain vanilla scented candle that I added the same ribbon and flower to to make a simple matching gift!
