Curry Birthday

It's time for another challenge at The Paper Players and this week we have a a very cool sketch challenge from Ann.


I knew I wanted some flowers in the oval panel that went over the edge, so I went looking for suitable flower stamps among my stash.  I decided on Mum's the Word and came up with this card, which also uses the colors and floral theme from the gorgeous inspiration pic at Fusion.


I stenciled on my card base using some white embossing paste I colored with Sunshine ink.  The banners were cut from Crushed Curry, Schoolhouse Red and Sea Glass cardstock.  The sentiment is embossed with Crushed Curry EP.


The flowers were stamped and fussy-cut before being adhered to the oval die-cut.  To be honest, the red flower was already stamped and cut and I can't remember what color I stamped it in.  I think it was Strawberry Slush but it doesn't match the Strawberry Slush cardstock very well, so I'm not sure.


Thanks for visiting.  The rest of the talented design team have some wonderful cards to inspire you, so be sure to check them out.

Karren
