Poppystamps Petal Ribbon


Hi everyone!

Joanne has a pretty color challenge for us at The Paper Players this week!




I wasn't sure which way to go with this...so when it doubt.... I reach for flowers. I figure you can never go wrong with flowers! I tend to always use my favorite colors when I make cards, so color challenges are SO good for me. Usually they are never colors I would think to put together, and when I see the end results I am always pleased! I really need to get out of my comfort zone more often.

I used my Poppystamps Petal Ribbon die. I cut it out in all four colors and did a bit of layering. Then I added some sparkly enamel dots. The funky scallop rectangle is from Reverse Confetti's Stamped Note 3, I adhered it to a My Favorite Things Blueprints 20 stitched rectangle.


The sentiment is from one of my fave Birthday stamp sets, Penny Black's Sprinkles and Smiles. I use it ALL the time!

This is an excited group of colors to use. I like that you did the base card in the light blue, as my eyes when right to the sentiment. The flowers are a wonderful accent. Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Mod Squad Challenge. Good luck, and hope to see you again.

I love this....there is so much visual movement with the stems, and that die frame is fabulous! I agree...that sentiment is pretty cool. Might have to look for that set myself!
