Flower Soft is Sponsoring CPS

Here's a card for Flower Soft's bi-weekly challenge using this week's CPS sketch and Flower Soft's "The Wine Buffs" paper-crafting kit.  The current challenge is to use rectangles.

For this quick, simple card, I rounded the corners of two rectangular pieces of designer paper that I cut from prints included in The Wine Buffs kit.  The kit also comes with lots of whimsical full-color printed images, and fun "shaped" card templates that are easy to put together.  I used classic circle dies to cut and emboss the image, distress inked everything, then added a bow of two-toned satin ribbon and some Snow White pearls.  The cork flower was fashioned from thin cork recycled from an old coaster, in keeping with the wine buffs theme.  

I hope you'll play along with CPS and Flower Soft!  Visit the CPS blog and Flower Soft's forum at SCS for more info!
