Hello Friend - 2 challenges

Sunday, June 19, 2011
It's another busy weekend, but I just had to make some time to create a card.  I recently ordered several of PTI's Think Big Favorites. I love the fonts and the size of these sentiments.  This is my first stamp purchase from first order was the Parisian Doily die (love it!).  Anyway, I've been itching to use one of these stamps!

This card is going into 2 challenges.

Lily Pad Cards - Memory Box presents Lucy's Lovely Lines
The Color Throwndown #146

I wanted to create a card with a "summer-y" feel.  And I thought the Throwdown colors were perfect for that.  And of course...I love Lucy Abram's sketches, over at the Lily Pad. is what I created:

I stamped my flowers onto patterned paper, then cut them out.  It's time consuming but, it's something I enjoy doing.  I popped up just the center flower on dimensional adhesive.  I did some stitching on my card stock to create my flower stems and also around the white panel, then did more stamping and cutting for the leaves.  I added some stickles to the center of each flower, just to add a little "pop".

Thanks for stopping in!

Stamps: the flower from Fifth Avenue Floral (SU), the sentiment is from Thinking Big Favorites #3 (PTI), the leaf from Sage Advice (SU)
