All sorts of flowers


This card is following the sketch on Simply Stampin'.  It was dull and rainy when I made this card so I went for bright sunny and warm colours.  

I started off with Pumpkin Pie for my card base and teamed it with some designer paper from Greenhouse Gala.  This is a lovely set of papers with bold patterns on one side and more subtle on the other.  Great for adding a little interest to cards, scrapbooking pages and other projects. 

I've added a scalloped edge in Pear Pizzazz with the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  A Pear Pizzazz strip was embossed with the Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder.  I then die cut a couple of flowers with the Daisies Bigz Die in Real Red and Pumpkin Pie.  A flower button from the Brights Buttons finished off the centres.  Birthday Wishes from Occasional Quotes was stamped in Pumpkin Pie along the bottom.

I wasn't sure how this was going to turn out but I rather like the end result.  Thanks for looking. x

So pretty... that embossing folder is awesome. And nice warm colours as well. Like the way your punched flowers match the designer paper.

I love the Greenhouse Gala papers, so cheery. And the spiky petals of the die cut flowers go so well with it. Love it!
