This is a go-to sketch for me--the banner elements and the circle may change depending on what papers, stamps, etc I wish to use but the layout is one that I use over and over again. I hope you like it too. I took an abstract approach to the vertical panel because I was itching to use the border die from Botanical Blooms:
There is hardly any stamping on this card because these beautiful dies did all the hard work! And, I didn't have to think about the colors either because the combination is straight from the Botanical Gardens DSP. Mint Macaron, Cajun Craze, Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow and Basic Black...who knew?! I guess the designers at Stampin' Up did!
I never would have put these colors together on my onw but my...they sure are pretty together. Love how it all pops on the basic black too. Can you believe these gorgeous flowers? The die cuts those layers so you can pop out the flower--so pretty! I also love the mix and match sentiments from the Endless Birthdays photopolymer set I used here....endless combinations!
You can see here that there is more stamping on the inside than the outside of the card! All the inside elements....the flowers, centers and line image are from the Botanical Blooms stamp set which I just stamped in the same colors as on the front along with this great sentiment from the Fabulous Four set....and it really is fabulous!
The Design Team also has some fabulous inspiration for you so pop over and check them out at The Paper Players. I hope you will be inspired to play along wiht my sketch this week before our challenge closes on Friday, January 29th at Noon (PST)....thanks for stopping by!
