DCDB 113 – Fifth Avenue Floral

Last night at the Technique Class, my customer (hi Polly!) thought Baja Breeze and Sahara Sand would be a good color combo!  She was RIGHT!  I added a little Perfect Plum in the mix to match up with the sketch we used today for the Designer Coffee Break Diva’s challenge.



I started with the base card of Sahara Sand.  On the Baja Breeze layer, I stamped the large flower from Fifth Avenue Floral in Baja Breeze, then ran it through my Big Shot with the large polka dot Texturz plate…can you see the polka dots?  Then I used the Scallops #2 die to cut the larger scallop circle from Whisper White and stamped the larger flower in Baja Breeze and the smaller flower in Sahara Sand, overlapping it slightly.  I used the Lots of Tags Slizzlits die to cut the curvy tag and added a greeting from Really Retro "Good for You!"  LOTS of dies on this card, but they make creating SO easy it is hard not to use them…kind of like punches!  lol!  Finally, I added some Kraft ribbon and vanilla mini brads from the Hodgepodge Hardware kit.  Pretty simple card with lots of style!

I love this set!! Never thought about using the circle scallop to cut it – great idea! I need to look at that sizzlit again too! hmmmm 🙂

Great job!
