Today's card is brought to you by the Pals Paper Arts challenge PPA22: A Simple Sketch! Margaret Moody (one of my fellow PPA Design Team Members) does such a fabulous job coming up with these designs. All that is left to do is fill in the blanks!
The floral set I used in today's card is actually going to retire January 1st. It is called Garden Greetings and is one of many dormant sets that will retire. So if you love it as much as I do, don't delay in ordering it! At the end of this post you will find a list of other retiring sets. Remember, once they retire, they are gone for good!
Some tips for this card:
- I started with an Lovely Lilac card base, scored at the top.
- The flowers, from Garden Greetings, were stamped onto Lovely Lilac and Orchid Opulence before being snipped out and layered onto one another using dimensionals.
- I removed the rhinestone from a Circle Ice Rhinestone Brad and applied it to the center of one of the flowers using a mini glue dot.
- The Swirl Scribbles Sizzlit was used to create Old Olive foliage around the blooms.
