Edgy card in dreamy shades of pink....

Inspired by the tiny vintage style jar (embellished with ribbon and button thread from Ribbon Girl) of flowers on my kitchen windowsill, I added some simple embroidery stitches (french knots) to the  flower stamps which were overlaid onto each other in shades to co-ordinate with the pink silk ribbon and threads I used for the embroidery.  I then cut around the flower shapes on the edge of the card to make an unusual shaped edge.  Card was first coloured with Natural Neutrals by Liz at Pink Petticoat in mushroom whisper and the inner of the card is sweet almond to add a bit more interest. I think my photos are improving too....I am putting this card in Ribbon Girl Challenge No 19 and LIM# 69 if I can find my way to doing it....!
