Petal Parade for The Paper Players

Greetings, Stampers! It's time for another Paper Players challenge, and this week Nance has a fun Tic-Tac-Toe board for us to play along with! Though I could have gone in more than one direction with my card, I chose top left corner to bottom right: Birthday, Patterned Paper and Any Shade of Blue.

For the main panel of my card, I used the Petal Parade Stamp Set, which can be earned free during the Sale-A-Bration promotion, but only until March 31. That's tomorrow! I used the color scheme of Basic Black and Pool Party, taken from the pretty Sweet Sorbet DSP.

The layout is from this week's challenge at Seize the Sketch.

This was a fun and easy card to put together. The only tool used was an Itty Bitty Punch for the tiny flowers. The raised flower was cut out by hand. 

Before I made my card I was playing around on a scrap of paper, and decided to use it to make a little 3x3 card. I think I like this little cutie even better than the full size card! 

Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Petal Parade, Petite Pairs
Card Stock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Pool Party
Designer Series Paper: Sweet Sorbet
Ink Pads: Black Stazon, Pool Party
