Pretty in Pink Manhattan Flower

Taylored Expressions gets credit on the layout for today's card (see below).

The lily stamp, from Fifth Avenue Floral, seemed very fitting given the time of year. It was inked using StazOn and stamped onto two pink patterns from the Tea Party Designer Series Paper. The two flowers were cut out using paper snips and layered onto ovals of Whisper White and Pretty in Pink (cut out using the coluzzle cutting system). One lily was popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. TIP: The ovals were offset to create a little interest (it also kind of reminds me of an easter egg!).

The flower/oval ensemble was then layered onto a piece of Whisper White (trimmed using the Scallop Edge Punch), and another layer of Pretty in Pink (a corner rounder punch was used on both- just at the top). A strip of Pretty in Pink Striped Grosgrain ribbon was wrapped above the scallops.

Pretty in Pink makes up the card base with another layer of striped Tea Party DSP. TIP: There are three different paper patterns going on with this card. I think it works because A) They are all from the Tea Party DSP so they coordinate perfectly, and B) A good dose of Whisper White was used to break up the patterns.

I love how you used the lilies from this set and how you offset the ovals. Reminds me of Easter! Kim S.
