A Broadway Birthday Card
Three Super Quick Cards!!!

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #521 Pop of Petals

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  This week we are using the colors Lovely Lipstick, Sahara Sand, and Blackberry Bliss.


I think I used the Pop of Petals bundle last Thursday, but here it is again.  It does look completely different.  Here is my card.

Using these colors proved to  be difficult for me, but I think I did all right.

The card base is Blackberry Bliss.  It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Sahara Sand cut at 3 3/4 x 5.

The Lovely Lipstick layer is 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  Stamp the flower over the lipstick cardstock.  Stamp off the Lovely Lipstick first.

Stamp 2 of the flowers in Blackberry Bliss ink on Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  Punch them out.  Use a Bone Folder to curl the petals of the flowers.  Adhere the two off center with a dimensional.  Punch two leaves in Blackberry Bliss with the Leaf Punch.  The Sahara Sand sprigs are cut with the Flourish Thinlits.  Arrange as you wish!

The sentiment is from the Tropical Chic stamp set.  Stamp on Sahara Sand.  It's cut out with the Stitched Labels Framelits.  Tie it on with the Blackberry Bliss twine from the Nature's Twine pack.  Add the lipstick layer with dimensionals.

The sentiment for the inside if also from Tropical Chic.  Add another flower just like on the front.  No dimensionals.
