Park Lane, Flower Patch CCMC315

We have a fun sketch for you this week at Create with Connie and Mary!  All these fun verticals in the background are an interesting opportunity for creativity!  I chose to use strips of the lovely Designer Series Paper Collection,  Park Lane.



The card base is Daffodil Delight with a layer of Old Olive cardstock over that.  Then the strips of DSP according to the sketch.


The large Flower Patch stamp was inked in Daffodil Delight and stamped onto Whisper White, then a second one was stamped also.  The large flower was diecut with the matching Flower Fair Framelit and the center section was fussy cut with my Paper Snips and layered with a Dimensional.


The horizontal banners were cut from the Park Lane DSP (top) and the Sweet Taffy (bottom, Daffodil Delight ombre).  I used Vanilla Shimmer Spritz over the card then several Pearls were added.  I didn't add a greeting but chose to wait until I was ready to send the card.

Stamps:  Flower Patch
Inks:  Daffodil Delight
Paper:  Park Lane and Sweet Taffy DSP; Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Whisper White cardstocks.
 Accessories:  Flower Fair Framelits, Big Shot, Paper Trimmer, Vanilla Shimmer Spray, Paper Snips, Pearls, Dimensionals.

Here is the clever sketch we have from Connie and Mary this week.  It may look challenging but remember it is open to interpretation by the stamp artist!

I looked at all the cards made from this contest and I love yours the best. I love green so I was sold on the color choices and your flower design.

I love the way you used a same-colour DSP and base layer - it makes that yellow flower really stand out. This is such a pretty card Margaret!
