Flower Power


It's time for another challenge. I found a new card challenge to do. For this card I went to The Friday Mashup I love this challenge because it combines a sketch and colour challenge in one card. Once I went through my Designer Series Paper I noticed that Paisley Petals incorporates all three colours, I knew that I wanted to use that paper. It was love at first sight with this DSP and I ordered it right away with the sneek peak from Stampin' Up! It will be available in the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalogue in July. This challenge uses a scallop circle punch which I don't own. I improvised it using the small circle punch in my Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. I just punched out some small circles and then cut them in half. Then I adhered them to the back of the circle et voilà. I saw this technique on a blog. I am also participating in the Pals Paper Arts challenge PPA 89 Fashion Inspiration - Flowers


And here's my card:

And the details are:

CS: Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Marina Mist
DSP: Paisley Petals DSP
Stamp Set: Punch Bunch (Sale-A-Bration)
Ink (Stampin' Write Markers) : Cajun Craze, Marina Mist
Embellishments: Crumb Coat 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon
Tools: 1-3/8" Circle Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Scallop Trim Border

Thanks for looking,
