Petal Potpourri…..for PPA 249

What a fun sketch for this week’s Pals Paper Arts challenge.


The focal point of this card has to be the bold and beautiful flowers from the Crazy About You stamp set in the Occasions Catalog.  Talk about a versatile set…there are not many occasions that this stamp set could not address.  The flowers were a cinch to create using the Flower Medallion punch.  Add the flowers from the Petal Potpourri stamp set and you have a the makings of many, many cards for just about every occasion.


The color combination was obviously inspired by the cheerful DSP Stack, All Abloom.  This is a great paper collection and I will be sad to see it go but will definitely use it until it is gone.  I paired it with the Island Indigo DSP from the Regals DSP Stack, another that will be leaving soon.

The hello and inside sentiment are from the Perfect Pennants stamp set and happily will be here for another year.  I use both of these sentiments frequently.  These are both stamped with Lost Lagoon Ink. I used the Banners Framelits to cut the Hello sentiment.   The envelope is spiffed up with the same Island Indigo DSP I used on the card.

WOW…three challenges in three weeks!  I should have started this sooner!

My goal now is to post more frequently, as I am really starting to get the hang of it….I think!  Thanks for stopping by and I will see you again soon.
