A Flower Patch Punch

Hello…today’s card was inspired by The Paper Players #290 color challenge….


This is as great color combination and one that I would never have thought of.  That’s why I love these challenges.  They really stretch your creativity.  Here’s what happened when I stretched…

I think this is such a cheerful card and cannot wait to send it.  I have a few birthdays coming up so I will have to decide who get this one.

The card base is Whisper White Thick cardstock with a mat of Soft Sky.  The DSP is from the English Garden DSP pack and is cut to 1 1/2″.  The thin Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie strips are 1/4″ wide.

I cut a circle from the Circles collection framelits and stamped the sentiment, which is from the Birthday Blooms stamp set, with Versa Mark and heat embossed it with black embossing powder. The flowers and leaves are from the Flower Patch stamp set and cut with the coordinating Flower Fair framelits.  I added a enamel dot to the center flower.  The flowers and leaves are all adhered to the circle using dimensionals.  I also popped the circle up on the card after the flowers were attached.

The inside sentiment is from the Lovely Amazing You stamp set.

    Thank you for this beautiful card! I have had Flower Patch stamp for a long time, but have been neglecting it of late, but after seeing this card, it will gets lots of use. I realized I didn’t have–or had misplaced the coordinating framelits, but was able to buy them on Ebay, so now I can’t wait to CASE this card. Love the way you lined the envelope, too, with the DSP. All-in-all, an outstanding card. Thank you.
