"Congratulations" Card

I wanted to try another one of Dawn's Color Challenges this week.


I've always loved pink and green together, but it was a little challenging adding in the dark red. The coleus plant is certainly beautiful, so why not a card. I think I may even use this combination again. All of my materials (except two flower petals) are from Papertrey Ink. I used Rustic twine to wrap around the card and to serve as the flower's stem and leaves.

Thanks for stopping by,
Susan

Oooh, this is so lovely! What a great, creative idea to use the rustic twine as the stem and leaves for your flower! I might have to steal (I mean case) that idea!
