Raining Flowers

We have a wonderful sketch for you to try over on Create with Connie and Mary this week!  Super easy, so grab your stamps and play along!  We show it square, but you can convert it to rectangle shape like I did!

 

 

I've had this set, Raining Flowers, since Convention last year and hadn't used or even mounted it.  I really don't know WHY…it is a pretty set and was very easy to use!

 

 

When coming up with a color scheme, I used one of my favorites…navy and pink…using two different shades of pink!  The base of the card is Night of Navy.  I layered on Whisper White.  I used the Night of Navy Patterns polka dot Designer Paper and added the Dotted Scallop Border Trim in Regal Rose along both edges.  I wrapped some Rose Red Seam Binding Ribbon around and tied a knot.

 

The larger flower image in Raining Flowers was stamped in Rose Red on Whisper White and cut out.  I stamped the smaller center flower in Regal Rose and cut out.  I added a Navy button with White Bakers Twine tied in the center.  The leaves are Pear Pizzazz cut out, too.  Everything was placed with Stampin' Dimensionals on a 2 1/2" Circle Punch of Night of Navy…and that was popped up with dimensionals, too.  Finally, I added three pearls along the edge of the circle and the Happy Birthday Wishes greeting from Petite Pairs in Night of Navy and cut in a flag edge.

 

Make sure to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!  Some wonderful ideas using this sketch.  Then come play along…we love to see your creations!
