"Sisters" by Jan Rankine

Hi everyone –
 Well!!!!  Alison, who owns Green Tara, has set all her Design  Team a challenge – and what a challenge – I have been in seventh heaven playing with all these flowers and ribbons this afternoon.  I think it took me longer to type the product list than to actually create the page.  Never mind, I loved every minute of it. 
 Green Tara makes so many of these petals in different colours (49 different  colours &  in many different sizes) and in the “old” days we used to use them individually  with a brad in the middle – oh so “yesterday”.  Just have a look at how great they look combined & all layered up. When you layer them it is so easy to achieve great volume without too much bulk.
I have also used several of these lovely Green Tara ribbons as well as some of their great Autumn leaves, just  to add a bit more  texture. I do so love these leaves, they are just so versatile.
 Now I had lots of leftovers sooooo, I thought I would make a card as well. I do so love this colour pallette teamed with the Kraft coloured card. I thought while I had everything out & my work area was in a mess anyway I might just as well make up a card to use up all the extra bits. This card was a quickie but because I used such lovely products, you really can't help but end up with a lovely card.
Hope I’ve given you some inspiration.

Luv Jan xx
