Paper Dolls Challenge #32 and Make It Mondays

Amy has a great challenge on the Paper Dolls blog today. Head on over there and check it out! Her challenge is to create a card using a floral image, embossing, and spring colors.

This also qualifies for the Make It Monday challenge. I love that Papertrey Ink started these. This week's challenge is to have a sentiment on vellum.

Here's what I made.

I embossed the flower with purple powder. After I cut out the vellum and stamped it with the sentiment, I ran it through the Canvas impression plate. I also used the Polka Dot impression plate on the Limitless Layers die-cut.

Thanks for visiting! 

All supplies used are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise specified.
Stamps:  YOF: Morning Glory, Inside & Out: Thank You
Paper:  Lavendar Moon, Pretty Pastels, Spring Rain
Ink:  Versamark, Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Embellishments:  Plum Pudding Polka Dot satin ribbon, pearls

    And how great that you fit it into 2 challenges!

  3. I like how you've just stamped part of the flower in the circle focal piece. That punched border in the background is a great added layer!
