PDCC 107

This is my second post on this rainy Saturday, which is unusual for me.  However, my husband announced that he was taking our daughters out to the movies.  Going to the movies is a special treat around here, so you can be sure our girls were literally jumping with excitement. 

I spent my time making this card for the Play Date Cafe Color Splash Challenge - white, black, and a splash of orange.  I recently picked up these gorgeous paper flowers by Recollections, and I knew I wanted to use them.  I had originally intended to do some stamping on the bottom portion of the card using PTI Damask Designs, but it was just too busy for my liking.  Instead I used an embossed panel to add texture but leave the focus on the flowers.  I added ribbon, a sentiment, and tucked in a few leafy bits from a Sizzix branch die.




Supplies:
Paper: PTI white
Stamp: PTI damask designs sentiment
Ink: Brilliance graphite black
Others: Cuttlebug Morrocan screen EF, ribbon from stash, Sizzix branch die, Recollections flowers
