WSC30 Challenge from Beate

Well Friday I did get a chance to do Beate's weekend challenge, but I worked the weekend and didn't have a chance to post. I struggled with the layout, I'm not going to lie. It's simple, but not my sort of thing, this is the best I came up with.This is my version using my new Target Dollar spot treasures. I just had to open them up. I even had to dig up a piece of Cool Caribean paper from last year to do one of the flowers. I have to say there is a lot going on on this card. One time I think it looks kind of cute and other times I think "YUCK". But good or bad, there it is.
Here is my SU! version of this card. The flower is cut out from a piece DS paper and then covered in versamark and embossed with Iridsecent Ice. I just couldn't make it work with the strips jetting out from the flower, I just compromised with leaves (2 petals from the 5 petal punch.) Neither of them are fabulous, but I told myself I was going to try to do some more of the challenges out there as they make you push yourself to do different things.
Thanks to the Florida gals that sent sunshine, it's sunny here today. (High of 8, with wind chill -10, BUT SUNNY). This is Minnesota, and I will take the sunshine whenever I can get it this time of year.

I think they turned out great. You started my challenges with one of my harder sketches!
It's cold here in Florida too. Well...for Florida standards that is. We started in the mid 30s and our high will stay in the 50s. That's cold down here.
Hugs and smiles
