Petals and Stems
This card is for the Verve Ready Set Stamp Challenge where you were to use either Petals and Stems or Fluttering by.
The sketch for this card came from the new SU catty and the color inspiration came from an advertisement on HGTV. At the end of the ad they had chocolate, turquoise and an olive color together and I thought WOW that would make a great card and well, here it is.
So here's the deets on this card...base choc. chip embossed with the elegant bouquet sizzix folder from SU. I don't have the top note die so I used my cricut storybook cart and cut the marquee shape at 5 inches. I cut a piece of old olive and used the SU border punch on the bottom. The stamps are all from Verve's Petals and Stems set. The ink used is temp. turquoise, old olive and choc chip. I punched the sentiment with the modern label punch SU and layered it with 2 more mod. label punches of turquoise. It doesn't show well in the pic but I added some stardust stickles to the butterfly and centers of the flowers.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
