TSOT - Pocketful of Posies

Hello every one! Did I get you singing the nursery rhyme? :) 

It's time again for another sketch for Try Stampin' On Tuesday! Here's the sketch:

And my creation:

When I saw the sketch I was a bit stumped in what I wanted to do. SO I started to pull out all my DSP to get some inspiration. I came across the paper in 'Pocketful of posies' - I bought a few of these packs while they were on the SU clearance rack, as I love the colours and patterns, but on the other side of these patterns, they have these super cool graphic designs. Now because I'm not really a scrap booker, the graphic designs would never really see light of day.

So after that long thought process :)... I decided to use them in a card. Once I knew where I was going, this card took very little time to create. I used one sheet of DSP. I cut the section I wanted for my main image, then cut the panel of rich razzleberry (the opposite side) and matted both onto soft suede. I added a plain strip of soft suede, as I thought it would be too busy if I embossed it. My sentiment is stamped in soft suede and is from 'On your birthday' and punched out with my 1 1/4 square punch and matted onto soft suede. I added a butterfly cut out in rich razzleberry from my Beautiful butterflies die. I dont know why, but all of a sudden rich razzleberry seems to be my go to colour. I have a few more creations I have made with it, but I cant share them yet :)

So now it's over to you - have fun with the sketch, we love seeing what you create!

Thanks for listening (reading) and looking xx
