PPA89-Where Have All the Flowers Gone? AND BLOG CANDY!!

Pals Paper Arts Challenge: Fashion Inspiration--Where Have All the Flowers Gone?

This card began with a scrap of Whisper White that was in my scrap box! I stamped the stems from Bold Blossom (Occasions Mini) using my clear mount set. What a snap when you can see the image through the clear blocks! I used Pear Pizzazz Ink.

Next, I had to think how I would "flower" them for the challenge. Buttons! I chose buttons that matched my 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon colors of Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Pretty In Pink. They are mounted on the stems with mini glue dots.

For the sentiment, I wanted to represent some grass, so I used Certainly Celery 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon and slipped a teeny knot on either side of my Modern Label punched from Tangerine Tango textured card stock. I mounted the sentiment from Bold Blossom which was stamped in Tangerine Tango ink onto Whisper White and punched out with an oval punch.

I think having those two knots down center really balances the knots in the center of the flowers.

My Whisper White was then ready to mount onto a piece of textured Tangerine Tango, which was folded to measure 5" x 5" and fit into Stampin' Up's Medium Square envelopes.

I hope you enjoyed seeing how I met the challenge this week and that you will play along with us. When you enter your project at the PPA website, you will be eligible to win this month's Blog Candy! Remember, you can use any products you like to create your project!
