Reminder Card for The Flower Challenge

We are half way through March (boy did that go fast) and so its time for the reminder post for The Flower Challenge. This month’s challenge is a fun on especially if you are like me and tend to collect a lot of leftovers. lol

For my card I used a bunch of scraps, in fact as many as I could fit on the page to make a mixed media card.

Here is a look of my scrap selection.

I then went through my pile and selected colors that I thought would work together as well as ones that would provide an interesting contrast.

Once I had a more manageable pile, I started playing around with placement and gluing the pieces down.

I wanted to make sure I had both colors and textures that were interesting and added some pieces from a die cut book page that I had left over. I also added some splatters of black and white paint to the background.

I then added my flower, again a leftover from a previous projects, and a Tim Holtz chipboard sentiment I embossed. I also added some white gel pen and black pencil around my background to frame it.

However, after taking this picture, I felt that both my flower and sentiment got lost in the busyness of my background and so I added some black paper to frame them both.

Can you tell the difference? I think the black frame helps both the flower and sentiment pop off the card a little more.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a chance to play along with us this month and use some of your beautiful scraps you have been saving.
