Three in one

hi everyone,
Today I'm playing along with three challengeS. This is challenge card # 43. the challenges I'm playing with are
The Paper Players. Nance is doing a theme challenge. You must use a flower of some kind.
Simple Stampin' challenge.this weeks challenge is a theme - Heartfelt.
Try Stamping on Tuesday. Jenn has a great sketch.

Here is the card I came up with:

The supplies I used are:
Stampin' up   Card stock - Bashful Blue,Certainly Celery, and Whisper white. Ink- Pretty In Pink, Pearls, and stamped sentiment is from Happy Harmony
Other supplies are:
Cuddlebug embossing folder, Tattered pine die from Tim Holtz, Spellbinder dies, background paper is DCWV, and coffee filters.
Here is a close up of my coffee filter carnations.

I just tinted the scallops with Pretty in Pink ink before building the flowers. I love this two tone look.
I hope you like my card. Be sure to stop back again tomorrow.
