Playing in Paradise #74 - Wedding/Anniversary

Happy Friday! It's Merlie's turn to challenge us over at Playing in Paradise this week, and she's given us this gorgeous floral prompt:
PPC #74

Use this beautiful arrangement to inspire your wedding or anniversary creations this week! I couldn't put away the idea of a heart made of flowers, so I went with it:
Supplies: paper from My Mind's Eye Indie Chic 'Saffron;'
Flowers from Prima;
brads from Basic Grey;
pink pearls

I cut a heart out of white cardstock freehand, and then clustered the flowers until I was happy with the arrangement. I attached some with brads (the darker centres) and the rest with a little dab of glue. Once it was dry, I added the pearls and glued the whole heart onto the card base.

Tis the time for weddings (and thus, anniversaries, of course!) so hopefully you'll have time and inspiration enough to play along with us this week! Make sure to visit the Scrapbooker's Paradise Ponderings blog to check out all the details & to link up your card before next Thursday at noon, July 12. (As an aside, did you know that the Scrapbooker's Paradise blog not only offers this challenge and projects by the senior design team, but also exclusive discount codes & new product features? If you're not following, you might be missing out!)

Don't forget to leave some love for my fellow teamies:

Hello Jessi,

I came to see your PPC card but got to enjoy several other posts. You're certainly far more loyal to the craft than I've been lately and I'm glad I got to see some of your ideas, who knows what inspiration I picked up.

Hope the rest of your week is equally as creative,
