From Me to You....

Hello Friends,
I was inspired today by the beautiful inspiration photo over at The Shabby Tea Room: Week #173 - Glorious Flowers:

This week Rebecca is our creative host and she has chosen the theme of 'Glorious Flowers' along with the beautiful photo above for inspiration.  Rebecca asks that we create a card or project inspired by the COLORS FROM THE PHOTO AND INCLUDE FLOWERS, RIBBON AND NEWSPRINT!

 I used the beautiful Spellbinders Grand Labels 4 and Decorative Elements Labels 4 to create my card base and mats.  My mat is made out of some old book paper that I had on hand and this is my "newsprint" element.  My ribbon elements are the two ribbon "leaves: attached to the left side of the large flower.  I actually created 5 various sized flowers out of floral paper.  Then after playing with the layout on the card I opted to combine them together to create one large bloom with a small rose at its center.

Here is a picture of the inside of my card:  
 I apologize for the color of my photos...I was really struggling with getting these colors to photograph well.  I think the very first photo is the only one that really shows them accurately.
 Thanks for taking a look at my card.  I have company this weekend so I am making this short and sweet!
Hope you join in the fun at the Tea Room!
