This was a baby shower invite I was asked to make and it just happened to also fit in with the Sugar Sweet Paper Treat polka dot challenge for this week!

I saw this 3-D flower in a recent edition of Creating Keepsakes and I thought I'd try it for myself. I used Plantin Schoolbook in Design Studio to cut the circles and then score them in thirds...the font is also from PS and welded in DS. I had never used my Bug to score before...what a time-saver! The flourishes are from my new Home Decor solutions cart. The purple card is all old paper from my stash - it didn't photograph as nicely as I would've liked - the embossing is Floral Fantasy from Cuttlebug. The gorgeous purple satin ribbon is Martha's (only $.99 on clearance!) The paper from the pink and green card is from the Spring Glitter Stack...the ribbon was a scrap from my stash.
Here's Deb's 5/1/09 challenge for the Sugar Sweet Paper Treat Design Team: "April showers bring may flowers...Main focus for May 1st challenge is flowers, but there is a twist...something has to be 3D - it doesnt matter what, it can be a box, journal, purse, an altered item or a card with a 3D embellishment on it. Anything goes the choice is yours...just remember flowers and 3 dimensional."As I've mentioned before, I love to use challenges as a starting point for a project that I have in mind. I knew I had 2 Mother's Day cards to make and what goes better together than moms and flowers?!
Thanks for looking!
