The Play Date Cafe Challenge #89!! =)

Welcome to this week's challenge 
at The Play Date Cafe!
This week, it's soft and subtle with the
Jax's suggested colors of....
Mint...Buttercream...Taupe
Here is what I came up with!! =)
This is my first time to play with this challenge!!
 I used mistable canvas paper from Prima to make my flower and the leaves!!
I painted the leaves with a mint acrylic paint and then used Ranger perfect pearls on top!!
I painted the flowers with cream and then used a pixie dust blingz paint on top!! The glimmer of the flower in real life is just stunning!! I used a Tim Holtz button with a mint gel for the center of the flower. Then I used a stamp on Core`dinations cardstock and frayed the edges. I glued it to a Taupe ribbon and then added two cream jute bows on either side and added pearls to the center of the jute!!
I LOVE the way that it turned out!! The base strip paper is a Webster's Pages paper and it is a Mint, and Taupe stripped paper on a cream base!! It was PERFECT for this challenge!! I then used a darker brown behind it to make it pop!! THANKS for stopping by and have a FABULOUS DAY!! =)
