Lattice Die and Daisy Card

It's Friday so it's Blogger's Challenge day! Todays challenge #114 is a sketch challenge from our challenge "mom" Lisa; it's nice and simple and very useful!

I've been wanting to use my Lattice die ever since I first saw and bought it. It was love at first sight, so why has it been sitting on my shelf? Too much else to do! Now, this is a great sketch to use it with! Can't wait! I began by die cutting Whisper White cardstock to make my lattice then die cut an Almost Amethyst flower with my Daisy Sizzlit using my Big Shot. Using the Boho Flower Punch, I punched a small flower of So Saffron and adhered it to the center of my daisy, adding a Pink Flower Brad in the center of that and laid it aside.

Since I was using this print from the Tea Party Designer Series Paper, I stayed with the color scheme of Almost Amethyst, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron and Whisper White. The card base is Almost Amethyst layered with Pretty in Pink and then the layer of the Tea Party DSP. The lattice was adhered on that and the flower attached with Dimensionals.

For the horizontal band of the design, I used a strip of Almost Amethyst and sponged the edges in the same ink. The sentiment was stamped in Basic Gray, one of the colors in the DSP, and punched with the Modern Label Punch. I attached a white Basic Small Grommet to each end of the label then adhered it to the band with Dimensionals. There wasn't room on the card for the three small circle designs so I omitted them.

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Inks: Basic Gray, Almost Amethyst
Paper: Tea Party Designer Series Paper; Almost Amethyst, Whisper White, Pretty in Pink card stocks
Accessories: Big Shot, Daisy Sizzlit, Lattice die, Modern Label Punch, Boho Blossoms Punch, Sponge, Basic Small Grommets, Pink Flower Brad, Dimensionals
