CPS meets SCS Ways to Use It!

I thought I would try to combine two challenges today, using a JustRite flower image! The Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use It Challenge (WT235) was to use red! I think this card is screaming a bit of red, don't you? I repurposed a red gift box ribbon to suggest the three boxes in the Card Positioning Systems (CPS 132) layout challenge (two loops and center) and added a cuttlebug panel to tie in the flower theme. Added buttons with bakers string to look like the buttons are stitched. And that helps tie in the stitching on the ribbon edge! The picture glare is pretty bad...I apologize! My tag image is from JustRite's Wood Stamper 2" Set that includes a bonus 15pt. font and flowers/vase center image. I copic colored and added adhesive gem centers to the flower centers, and crystal effects on the vase to suggest glass.
It felt great to finally play in a couple of challenges. Hopefully you will get a chance to play along too! Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by! Take good care!

I am liking the way you did your fowers, but especially the vase it does look like water.

Lovely. I used that very embossing template yesterday but your card is much prettier than mine.

I'm making 50 birthday cards for my sister who turns 50 next week. The pressure!!
