Pals Paper Arts Sketch #194



At first I didn't know what to do with these colors. I sat down and knew my base would be Night of Navy and that I would be making a Scalloped Tag Topper card. Everything else came to me. I hadn't used my brand new Peaceful Petals stamp set yet. (It's part of Ann Schach's Lesson of the Month for February--I'll be doing my lesson later on in March)

I thought of cutting out the leaves in Smoky Slate, but then I noticed the beautiful leaves in this stamp set and thought they would look nice stamped in Smoky Slate onto Smoky Slate card stock. Then I used my Petite Petals stamps and my Petite Petals Punch and decorated those stems. Each stamped flower was backed with a punched flower in Wisteria Wonder.


I decided to make a dotted line toward the middle of the card so I can see where my writing needs to end. I don't want it to show when the card is closed. The "Thinking of You" sentiment is also from Peaceful Petals, and it shows when the card is tied closed using Silver 1/8" ribbon.

I hope you like what I made today. Won't you please leave a comment for me? Thank you! Have a great day!!

Patti, this is so beautiful! Isn't it great when you're not sure where you are going and the process brings you to someplace beautiful? Love it! The dotted line down the center of the card is a great idea!
