Flower Shop Birthday CCMC307

This week we have a great sketch from Create and Connie and Mary!  I used a rectangle instead of an oval for my card and also used the new Lullaby DSP from the new Stampin' Up! catalog!


I opted to use a standard A-2 card of Hello Honey topped with Whisper White, turned horizontally.  The rectangle is one of the patterns from the new Lullaby Designer Paper.  Actually this paper is so versatile and the patterns are not exclusively for babies;  I think the above card could be used for any age birthday, don't you?  I rounded the corners with the Envelope Punch Board and tucked a flag or banner of another coordinating print to the right.  Tied around that is Linen Thread, then I added a few more loops of the thread for additional pizazz.


The larger flowers are punched with the Pansy Punch and the Cantaloupe flowers are punched with the Petite Petals Punch.  Small leaf stems were punched from Baked Brown Sugar and tucked under the flowers.  I colored the Rhinestones with the Medium Daffodil Blendabilities marker.

Stamps:  Gifts of Kindness (sentiment)
Inks:  Baked Brown Sugar
Paper:  Hello Honey, Whisper White, Baked Brown Sugar and Crisp Cantaloupe cardstocks.   Lullaby DSP.
Accessories:  Flower Shop, Petite Petal, Bird Builderand Word Window Punches.  Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Linen Thread, Rhinestones, Envelope Punch Board (corner rounder).

Here is the sketch:

This has to be one of the most beautiful cards I have seen on scrapbooking. Your choice of colors- so soft and rich looking.

Beautiful job on this week's challenge! I love your flowers. The DSP you used is just perfect for this design.

Very pretty. Love your combination of papers, textures and bling. I especially like the way you have done the linen thread under the flower blooms. A technique I have yet to try.
