Better late than Never!!

This is the quickest post ever! After many rejects, this is my card for the latest Playdate Cafe Challenge

This is using some very old paper from my stash and also some Kaisercraft paper, flower, ribbon  and gems.
I used nestabilities, embossing folder and  distress ink on the flower. The paper comes out really pink in the photo, but in real life is more of a purple/pink.

I learnt something about myself during this challenge - I am way too literal!  I had so much trouble choosing what to use, because I felt it didn't match the colours. I need to allow myself to use the challenge as a jumping point and then go wherever my creativity leads me!!! Maybe I shall make more cards out of the rejects.
