I'm back this week with a birthday card which I'd like to enter into two challenges:
The cardstock is GinaK pure luxury in Ivory and Grass Green. The rose and tulip images are from Melanie Muenchiner's Pressed Flowers stamp set and stamped in Memento Grape Jelly, Lilac Posies and Bamboo Leaves. I stamped the pink rose first, then stamped it again on a Post-It note and fussy-cut it to create a mask. I then stamped the leaves, stems and tulips with the mask in place. The sentiment is from Theresa Momber's Whimsical Wishes stamp set and stamped in Memento Sweet Plum. The ladybug is from Melanie's A Year of Flowers set and stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Copic R27 (I also added some Glossy Accents to make it pop). I ran the card base through my Cuttlebug, using an embossing folder with a flower image. I also rounded the two opposite corners of the cardstock (base and image) using a corner-rounder punch. The seam binding ribbon is from the Cat's Pajamas and the pearlies are from my stash. I punched the purple flourish using my wave flourish punch.

This is a picture of the matching bookmark:
I ran one half of the Ivory cardstock through the same flowery embossing folder and stamped the Bible verse on the un-embossed half, using Memento Lilac Posies. The verse is from the GinaK He is Risen stamp set.

I would like to enter this card in the following 2 challenges:
