Bitty Bouquet Blues...

Today I am playing along with the Pals Paper Arts color challenge and the Sunday Stamps color challenge.  The colors are basically the same for both challenges – PPA has early espresso, sahara sand and marina mist; Sunday Stamps has dark and light browns, light blue and white/vanilla.  So I decided to enter this card in both challenges.

I have had these wonderful stamps and dies from Papertrey Ink called bitty bouquets for a couple of months.  And they have been waiting for the right moment for their debut!

I started off with a card base of early espresso and then added a card front of sahara sand.  I used old olive and marina mist to stamp the flower and then die cut it to pop it up on the card front.  I tucked the sentiment next to the die cut.

I did use my trusty linen impression plate on the sahara sand.  This plate adds just the right touch on this card.  That and a few pearls and candy dots!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to stop in tomorrow!

By the way, did you just happen to make a card with twine or ribbon on it, and use stamps older than one year?  You did?  Then link that baby up HERE and play along with the Retro Rubber challenge!

Supplies:  CS:  SU! early espresso and sahara sand.  PTI white.  Inks:  SU! old olive, early espresso and marina mist.  Stamps/Dies:  PTI bitty bouquets.  PTI linen impression plate.  Other:  SU! candy dots and pearls.
