The Paper Players color challenge.
I love the "Secret Garden" stamp set and coordinating framelits and thought they would make a lovely birthday card for my friend.
I ran a piece Pear Pizzazz card stock through the Big Shot using the Woodgrain embossing folder and created a banner using it. It just needed a bit of texture and I wanted to mimic the more natural element of the flowers.
Because I wanted to create dimension and staggered height, I adhered the bottom flower flat, the next one using one dimensional, and then stacked two dimensionals high on the top flower.
I added a banner backed by Crisp Cantaloupe and the sentiment stamped in Pear Pizzazz and finished it off with a small pearl. Boy I've been running through pearls of late...;o)
Now to address it and get it mailed off.
