Pretty Petals for PPA 296

This is my second post of the evening.  If you missed the first one, you can click here.

I was working on my newsletter and realized that I almost missed the PPA challenge! I stopped what I was doing and hopped to it!

 My card is built mostly on Designer Series Paper (DSP) and very little stamping.  Why?   These pretty papers will be retiring soon and I must use them up.  I always save my paper because it's so pretty.  I hate to cut into it.  Silly, I know!

Here is my card for the challenge:

And here's the challenge banner:


All of the DSP for this card came from the Pretty Petals Paper Stack.  I like this paper because it is so perky.  It's a really good deal too!

My card base is made from Pacific Point cardstock and the DSPs are layered with Pacific Point as well.

The flower stamp is from a past Paper Pumpkin.  I selected it because it had a similar shape as the flowers in the DSP.  I colored it with Calypso Coral and cut it out.  The two Old Olive leaves are actually the wings from the bird punch.  The sentiment is from the Something to Say stamp set.  I punched the sentiment out and popped it up with a Dimensional.  I adhered the finished flower on the circle to match the sketch.

I like to have a little sparkle on my cards somewhere.  For this card, I used the clear Wink of Stella to color the center of the DSP flowers and the sentiment.  It's hard to see in the picture, but it's there.

And that's it!

Hope you enjoyed my card.  Please leave a comment below.  I get lonely when nobody speaks to me!

Happy stamping!
