Park Lane Birthday

Today we have a super new sketch from Create with Connie and Mary!  Very simple, easy and versatile!  Great for CAS (Clean and Simple), quick cards, and fun techniques too!

I looked through my Designer Paper and chose this print from the Park Lane DSP Collection for the upper part of the sketch.  The card itself is Daffodil; I added the Park Lane panel and finished the bottom off with a swath of Chevron Natural Ribbon with the chevrons turned inside and the natural back showing.  This was edged with the sweet Venetian Crochet Trim.  The sentiment was stamped in Soft Suede, which is a color from the designer paper.

I wanted to add more depth to the top so I cut out four flowers from the designer paper, curled them slightly with my bone folder and attached them with Glue Dots.  For the three dots, I used So Saffron buttons, colored them with my Daffodil Delight Blendabilities and centered them with 1/4" circles of Gold Glimmer Paper.
