PP399 Floral Flourish Thanks

Hi friends! It's Sunday and that means time for a new challenge at The Paper Players. This week the sweet and talented Laurie is our hostess with a sketch challenge.

So here's my take on the sketch. I knew I wanted to use this new-to-me stamp set from Verve for the focal point, but I wasn't sure where to fit the sentiment so I shifted the vertical panels to the right a bit. I think this is the first time I am using these dies, too. I almost used a real button, but liked the way the piercings in the paper button echoes those in the flourish.

Stamp Sets: Dream Big (Verve)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Smoke, Sunshine (Simon Says Stamp)
Patterned Paper: Classique Beauty (Carta Bella)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Butter Bar (Hero Arts)
Tools: Big Shot, Scalloped Flower Dies (Verve), Pierced Fancy Flourish Die, Vintage Button Dies (My Favorite Things)
Accessories: Enamel Dots (Simple Stories)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please leave a comment, and then head over to visit the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players. We hope you'll play along with our challenge this week, too! 

Inky hugs :)

Good Morning Sandy, Like this kind of card. The colors are so "in" now. Yellow and gray are all over the stores. The button is perfect.

This is not a colour combo I use often Sandy but it works really well and I love how your plaid pattern ties everything together. Lovely pierced detail on the flower and flourish too - so pretty!

Love the contrast of the soft curves of the flourish with the linear pattern of the plaid. Great colors together and that button die is fantastic!
