" Beautiful Pansy Cup" and a Big Beautiful Bow!

Hello!
On my last post, I challenged myself not to use ribbons or bows. OK...enough of that craziness! LOL!
Today's card is done with elements from 3 of my different Design Teams (past or present)
This "Favorite Flowers" image is from Fred She Said who I had the honor of DTing for quite awhile back. I still LOVE Tracey's images! This one comes colored or not. (2 different sets purchased separately) I chose to color it myself so I could match the image to the AWESOME ribbon I wanted to use.

About that AWESOME  ribbon...It is from one of my newer design teams, Really Reasonable Ribbon. They have the most beautiful selection of ribbons, trims, and embellishments! I chose to use the new Wired Solid Iridescent Blue/Violet and the Royal Blue Swirls Organza. See what I mean about how I matched the image to the ribbon? Thank goodness for watercolors. You can mix the colors for a perfect match!
I used extra thick clear embossing powder on the cup to give it some shine and depth to make it look real.

On to my 3rd DT that was incorporated into this card. My Dear Friend Patricia @ The Paper Temptress had me pick papers for a package that she is featuring this month. It is called "True's Favorites" and right now, she is offering it for 20% off! You get 20 sheets (2 of a couple of colors) for $13.19! reg. $16.49! 
Still not convinced to give it a try? Click on the picture of my swatches to enlarge and look at all of that sparkle! That is why they are my faves!!!
I even got to design the label for the packaging! Tehehe!


The colors used from my collection for today's card are Fairway mica metallic, Amethyst mica metallic, and Heavenly White.

Thanks again for dropping by!
Hope you will leave me a little love (comment)  :D
Hugs,
True :D
