Yesterday I used Papertrey Ink's Twig Wreath to make an actual wreath but I had commented that I had purchased the set more for the flowers and other builder elements, not the wreath. I also fell in love with Leigh Penner's use of the flowers
along with the set Stacked Sentiments (which allowed me to justify the purchase of that set too!)
Then I checked Merry Monday's newest challenge
- green, pink and white - and I knew what I was going to do!
I grabbed a piece of my favorite Christmas paper from this year - it's the plaid from Taylored Expressions Build a Scene Christmas Paper Pack which happens to be pink and green (hopefully the fine group at Merry Monday will forgive me for the pop of burgundy). I matched up inks - and this is what I ended up with.
I do wish that I wouldn't have used the very lightest pink in the big flower - it gets a little lost - although it's a little better in this close-up.
Your card is so pretty! Love the combination of the stacked happy and the arrangement of flowers!ReplyDelete
What a great design. I love the big letters in the center of your card with the flowers - so pretty and fun all at the same time.ReplyDelete
This is so darling, Kims! I saw it and just felt my shoulders relax as I went, aaahhh! Hugs, DarnellReplyDelete
I love this! That plaid is so fun! The HAPPY letters make me smile! XXReplyDelete

So pretty, and such a great design Kim. Thank you for playing along with Merry Monday.ReplyDelete
I love how you used the flowers and that stamp set and matching sentiment set by PTI! Beautiful card!!!ReplyDelete
Love that plaid paper and the stamped die cut! The burgundy is just a darker shade of pink. Thanks for sharing this with us at Merry Monday!ReplyDelete
Oh, your card is gorgeous! Love, love the colorcombo, the stacked sentiment is gorgeous and so versatile too.ReplyDelete
Totally justified indeed, ha, ha.
That's what I tell my husband every time he asks if I really 'needed' the new stamp or die. :-)
Thanks for sharing, hope to see more of these stampsets in the future.
Gorgeous card and I do like the two shades of pink for your flowers. It looks great! Thanks for joining us this week at Merry Monday!ReplyDelete
