3 challenges 1 card: FTTC20 /KSS challenge #14/ A passion for Papertrey challenge 8

Usually, I make a card for each challenge but this time I tried to combine three challenges in one card.

Kitchen Sink Stamps - challenge 14 : reuse, recycle.
My recycled product is the packaging of one of my Kitchen Sink Stamps set

Flourishes - challenge FTTC20: get inspired from Kim Poloson's posters.
I got inspiration from THIS poster (Fresh Picked Bouquets).

A Passion for Papertrey - Challenge 8: There must be at least two flowers on the card, use at least one PTI product.
I stamped two Kitchen Sink Stamps flowers, I used a PTI ribbon (leaf) and berry sorbet cardstock (PTI) distressed with frayed burlap and worn lipstic (Distress Ink).

I challenged myself by choosing a poster with a black background, I rarely use black cardstock and I can tell you that it was a huge challenge for me. I am still not convinced about the result.

Stamps: 3-step Hydrangea, Multi-step Lilies
Inks: Palette, Memento, Distress Inks
Ribbon: Leaf (papertrey)
Accessories: Fiskar corner punch (lace), cuttlebug, stickles (black), butterfly punch (xcut).

I will be back soon with more "Italian Inspirations"!
