Hi there!! I haven't done a cps sketch in a few weeks so thought I would play along this week. I had to use my new flower from papertrey ink's new set "in bloom". I really can't stop using this set!! I wanted to make the card relatively simple to put the focus on the flower. I used some left overs on my desk from other projects... I have been really trying to use up my scraps before buying new paper. Just trying to simplify a bit. On a scrap of raspberry fizz left over from my die cut butterflies I stamped the flower three times in scarlet jewel ink. I then cut out three layers and used a dimensional in between each layer. I stamped the leaf on a ripe avacado scrap and cut out. the patterned paper I downloaded from 2peas.... it's rhonna farrer modern chintz i believe it is called. I swiss dotted a scrap of white and cuttlebugged another scrap with a label die. I had a piece of lime polka dotted ribbon that I used to tie around the card after layering all the pieces together. The sentiment is from the mixed messages set from papertrey ink inked with raspberry fizz. An over all fast, simple but elegant card and all made with scraps!!!! I'm off to finish a few more projects and finish up organizing my new studio...
thanks for looking and have a great day!!
