So Excited


I am so tickled with this card. It was so much fun putting it together.  It was born of a combination of three challenges.



I started out with inspiration from Time Out Challenge #32 - CASE Deepti's card above with your own twist. I began to think about the elements in Deepti's lovely card and how to twist them into my own creation.  My new Paper Smooches Big Vase Dies came to mind, and then my idea began to take shape. I filled my die cut vases with flowers from Paper Smooches Twiggy Florets that I embossed in green on the black background and the inlaid white vases. My images and sentiment are all from Paper Smooches so it works for this week's Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge - May 31- June 6 Anything Goes (wk5).



I embossed the flowers in green again on vellum, colored them with Copics from behind, and adhered them with glue dots.  I so love the sentiment, so I embossed it to make it stand out on the black background . The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers' current challenge is "V is for Vellum". The vellum flowers and punny saying fit right in


Thank you for coming by today. Your comments are welcome and appreciated. Have a wonderful day!

Such cute cards! I love the idea of using black on the card base. It's not something you see done often, and it's looks great! Thanks so much for playing along with the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge! :)

I am totally cracking up. My first read of your card, and I did not see that the sentiment said plants, and I thought it said pants. I guess my mind is in the gutter. I really love the look of those embossed plants and the torn edge of paper.
