Make Your Own Flowers at Shelly's Images

Happy Thursday, everyone! Hope you're all having a wonderful day! I've had a busy week but have some wonderful things going on, so I'm a happy girl!

Anyway, I'm here, today, to share a project with you and tell you about a brand new Teriffically Thrilling Thursday at Shelly's Images! That means its time for a new challenge, and some yummy eye candy from the DT.

Please remember that we are in the process of transitioning through some changes at Shelly's Images. We're going to be having our Challenges go in hand and in hand with the featured images, each week, on Thursdays. However, some of the DT worked ahead and had projects done before the change was made, so things aren't quite in synch again this week. This week's featured image will not match the challenge on all projects. Please bear with us while we make the final steps to get it all together. Starting next week, the featured image and the sketch will go hand in hand, so there will be no confusion.

This week's challenge at Shelly's Images is to make your own flowers. I've created this yummy card for you as inspiration:

For my project today, I'm using the May Flowers image, colored with Promarkers, from Shelly's Images. I chose pink and green because it makes a great color combo. Both papers are scraps from my stash.
I used this gorgeous hand crocheted flower, and accented it with sprigs of greenery, punched with the Martha Stewart branch punch. The sheer white ribbon is from my stash and compliments the flower so nicely.

If you love this May Flowers inage as much as I do, you can get it in Shelly's Store, here.
