This wasn't what I intended!

I went upstairs armed with a list of possible challenges and intended to make a card that fitted a couple of them. I had pink and girlie in mind. Then I decided I wanted to do a teddy bear challenge which also required embossing. So I set to making this card and when I'd finished I realised I hadn't put any embossing anywhere! No matter, it wont go to waste, I thought. Fortunately I've now I've managed to find some challenges it does fit.


For this card I've used:
Card blank made from a pack of coloured card bought recently from either Aldi or Lidl.
Vellum is from a Mattie's Flowers sheet (bought when I used to use Mattie's stencils years ago).
Brown card is from stash and punched with my new Martha Stewart's Arch Lattice deep edge punch, same card used for scalloped circle which has been cut with Nesties die.
Image is from an old set of foam stamps bought when I first started stamping years ago, coloured with Promarkers, cut with Nesties circle die and mounted onto a sunflower which was given to me by a friend.
Orange/yellow ribbon from QVC.
Brads from stash.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Scrap Creations #24 - Recipe - Ribbon, flowers, brads or pearls (I've used ribbon, brads and flowers on vellum, image and the sunflower)
For Fun Challenges Make anything with ribbon or lace
Christmas Stamping All Year Long #62 - Other than Christmas
Allsorts #67 - Inspiration from a garden or park
Crazy4Challenges #C4C52 - Lattice
The Shabby Tea Room #25 - Old Meets New (Old is vellum, brads and rubber stamp, new is card stock and MS punch)
