Thursday!! And look at these GREAT colors Julie gave us today!! Bring on Spring!!! Make sure you come by the ColorLab and play along with us! Check out what the other girls did too-I'm sure you will be wowed!!


ROSE RED, REGAL ROSE,  & 
ALWAYS ARTICHOKE


Thanks to my downline Sharon, I finally got this set together AND used it!! Thanks friend!! I decided to go with a square card for this flower. Folded it is 5-1/4" square to fit our 5-1/2" envelopes. The card base is Rose Red with a Regal Rose layer behind the background Very Vanilla. I textured the Vanilla with the Perfect Details Texturz Plate. The biggest petal of the flower was stamped 8 times on Very Vanilla and punched with the coordinating punch. I used a small circle in the center to help align the petals. I still need a little practice at that :) Next, I did the narrow petals in Regal Rose and punched. Through the center is a Very Vanilla 5/8" Jumbo Brad. The flower is attached with dimensionals. I find I like one on each side of the brad, and near the edge of the four lowest petals. The petals were also curled lightly around the Paper-Piercing Tool. The leaves are Always Artichoke and attached to the card base under the petals. The saying is from a new set from the upcoming Summer Mini, Happy Greetings.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll stop over at the ColorLab and play along with us this week!

Beautiful!!! Did you see Patty Bennett's post about using a template, so you can punch all the elements of our punch at once?? It's so much easier! You are probably doing that, but just thought I'd throw it out there! Great cards! :D
