If Friends were Flowers ... I'd pick YOU!


Hi everyone.  Here is my Design Team card for the latest challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More - Sketch #6 (check out the sketch below).  I wanted to use the beautiful designer papers called Sycamore Street ... the colors are so bold and bright and it definitely says "Spring".  I have a fairly large "collection" of designer papers.  I call it a collection, because I don't use them on my cards very much ... just keep collecting them :) My goal is to start using them more ... hopefully!

FYI, Addicted to Stamps & More is making some changes.  A new series of challenges begins next week, so stay tuned for some fun and exciting changes!

Here's today's sketch:





Stamps:  Watering Can Logos (C.C. Designs)
Paper:  White, Sycamore Street DP, Rich Razzleberry, Summer Starfruit, Tangerine Tango (SU!)
Ink:  Rich Razzleberry (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Small daisy and small sun punches (punch bunch), Little Leaves die (Sizzix),  Stylus Kit (McGill), mat, piercing tool, piercing template, glue, adhesives, and dimensionals





I stamped the large sentiment just above center and then added a line of piercing below.  The daisy is three layers, with the petals pinched and shaped.  Two sun punches (also shaped) are the flower center.


Here's a close-up view of the flower and sentiment:



I hope I have inspired you to join us for this fun challenge.  Check out the other fabulous creations by the Design Team at ATS&M!
