Botanicals for PPA 298

Today I have created a card that I will enter into the weekly Pals Paper Arts Challenge.  
Here is my card ~

And this is the banner that got me started ~ 

I used Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper with Botanical Builder Framelits Dies.  I used Mossy Meadow for my base card and a greeting from Suite Sayings.  The center of the flower is a pearl that I colored black with a Sharpie pen.

Inside, I backed Very Vanilla cardstock with the black print from Botanical Gardens DSP, and stamped a flower and leaves from the Botanical Blooms photopolymer stamp set.  I stamped the flower first with So Saffron, masked it off and stamped the leaves over the mask with Pear Pizzazz.  The leaf veins are Mossy Meadow.  The flower stamen is Cajun Craze.

You can still get this set in a bundle - the best way to purchase the coordinating items at a 15% discount - but after May 31 you will only be able to buy the stamp set and the thinlits separately.  The paper will be discontinued.

Thanks for stopping in today!  Happy Stamping!

    2. It's a great bundle, Patti! Better hurry though!

  3. I'm SORRY TO BOTHER YOU, BUT I'm LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO share the measurements for a card like this? I've had a lot of health issues lately but still wanted to play. I just been able to figure out the numbers for cards like this! It's so pretty. I apologize for my larger letters. I have a new laptop and I'm still learning how to use it.
