Flourish of Flowers

My card today is my entry for the Pals Paper Arts #304 sketch challenge…


The set I used on this card, Flourishing Phrases, is quickly becoming a favorite.  I used it on this card here also.

The card base is Whisper White thick cardstock with a mat of Rich Razzleberry.  The DSP is from the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper.  I stamped the flower in Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum and Blushing Bride to give a little bit of an ombre effect.  The flowers were fussy cut and the leaves are Pear Pizzazz and cut from the coordinating Flourish Thinlits.

I wasn’t sure where to put the sentiment while still following the sketch, so I decided to just stamp it directly on the flower in Rich Razzleberry ink.

The inside is embellished with a strip of Rich Razzleberry and DSP.  I left it blank for a personal note.

The envelope flap is decorated with more DSP.  I also stamped the same flower on the front of the envelope…just a little hint of the handmade goodness inside!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you can find sometime this weekend to make something special.

Take care,




  1. That stack of blooms looks so pretty with that DSP. the pop of green is the perfect addition too. Thanks for joining us at the PPA this week!

  2. Loving the ombré look to the blooms. I really like that you put the sentiment on the bottom flower ! It surprised me and I like it!!! Such a nice card Roseanne!!

    • Thanks so much Ann! Adding the sentiment to the stamped image was new to me, but I liked it too! Thanks for taking the time to comment.

  3. Great job fussy cutting the flowers and the colir combination is so pretty. Thanks for playing along with us this week at Pals Paper Arts.
