Summer Flower Pot

   My summer pot of flowers is made using Flowersoft in yellow, orange and summer mix with  some small die cut leaves. I've tried to use everything from my stash as some of these things have been around for ages. The little terracotta  half pot I've had so long I can't remember where it came from!
    The lace doily is die cut using a Papermania die and cut in cream card that has been distressed with Old Paper Distress Ink. Each flower in the lace has a yellow pearl in the centre, the pearls are cut from a swirl I've had for months and coloured with a permanent marker, as are the tiny orange pearls in the corners.
    The melon coloured card has also been distressed around the edge with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and mounted on to pearl chocolate card after having green ribbon wrapped along each side. There is a small gold corner peel off in each corner to finish off.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Make My Monday - Ribbon and Lace
Inkspirational - Colours, Yellow, Orange and Melon. 
Heck Of A Challenge - Bingo (Lace, Ribbon, Pearl, Yellow, Die Cut, Green)
Our Creative Corner - Recipe (Ribbon, Clay, Ink)
