SV - No Black Ink Challenge

I found another card that I really liked whilst I was blog hopping the other day. This one was made by Lisa from Paper + Craft = Bliss . Whilst I didn't have the exact punch - I knew that I would be able to recreate something very similair from my own stash using a normal flower punch and just curling the petals of the positive flower before sticking it onto the backing.

This is the card that I reproduced from Lisa's card! I thought this card would be perfect for the Stamping Vacation - No Black Ink Challenge - but this was not my design and it would just not sit right with me to take credit for someone else's creation - so I came up with one that was my own but still used the same punched flower idea.

Materials used are:
9750 Card Pack - Neutrals A5 216gsm (30) Asst - Kraft
Pretty in Pink SB Paper (retired from Crafty Kids)
Button Ups (retired from Crafty Kids)
4848 Punch - Jumbo - Flower
4260KK Mini Messages - Friends Un-Cut Set (9) - For my FRIEND
006KK Mini Messages Un-Cut Set (9) - Happy Birthday
TIM19534 - Distress Inkpad - Walnut Stain
Twine - Stampin Up

My apologies for the poor photo quality - I have no idea what I am doing wrong - Sorry!
 Both cards are currently in the Snail Mail to two very lovely ladies.
EDITED TO SAY - I almost forgot to tell you all that if you hop over to Lisa's blog she is offering some fantastic Basic Grey Blog Candy. There is a link on the photo on my right side bar.
