Sweet Pea

HI stampers!!!

Today's blogger's challenge was to focus on punches. I have to admit, though, that I made this card last week. One of my club girls became Grandma for the first time - Congrats Fran!! So I made this card for her. I cased it mostly from Andrea - I fell in love with this pod of peas as soon as I saw it, so I had to put my spin on it.

The card base is regal rose. The main panel is whisper white matted with pretty in pink. I stamped the flourish from baroque motifs in old olive. The pea pod is made from the wide oval and 3/4 inch circle punch. The edges of all of the punches are sponged. I accented it with my white gel pen. The rest of the background panel was sponged with bashful blue.

I stamped the sentiment, from teeny tiny wishes, in regal rose. I then punched it out with the word window punch. It is matted with the modern label punch, also regal rose. I punched a hole on the one side with my crop a dile and threaded retired ( boohoo) pink gingham ribbon through it and around the main panel and tied it into a bow. I then adhered the sentiment panel down with stampin' dimensionals.


Did you see those flowers?? They are from the pretties kit. I colored the entire flower with pretty in pink and then used a sponge dauber to color one side with regal rose. I folded them up and adhered them down with mini glue dots. I then accented each flower with flat backed pearls from the pretties kit, also adhered down with mini glue dots.
I would love to know what you think :)
