Pink Mirkwood Flower card (& template) and some Sublime Inspiration! (link lovin)

This 6 inch plus pink flower card was made with Ruthann Zaroff's Mirkwood Designs lovely flower template. All it required was Bali Breeze designer paper, Purely Pomegranate c.s., a pair of scissors, scallop punch, & a white gel pen. I added one of the new Hodge Podge brads in the center. Want to see another flower card & template? Need instructions for using the template? Click here. :0)

Also, here are some inspiring project links (I found many of these thanks to Corie who is a Fine example of linkin up the love and cardmaking!) You Artists ROCK!!!

You could layer and layer and layer for a great effect. I love that there's no white under these petals since it's double-sided paper. Bet this'd look good in white too though, hmmm?

Thanks for taking time out of your day to look,

P.S. You can send a classic Wonderland e-postcard (made by Ruthann Zaroff.) I just finished rereading Carroll's Classic again: Love it! LOVE it! Love it! (<---you tube videos)
