Framed Flower


I haven't given my Purple Onion Designs stamps much love lately and I knew the Flower Framed Doodle stamp would be perfect for this week's CASual Fridays challenge to use scallops.  I paper pieced it with Basic Grey's Lime Rickey papers - score one for using more patterned paper!  :)  It's rather Courtney Kelley-esque I think.  I love her paper piecing and I discovered POD thanks to her fabulous work on their design team.  Off to throw the ball for the hounds now.  I can't take their "I'm so neglected" eyes any longer!


Cardstock:  (Kraft) PTI
Patterned Paper:  (Cherry Cola, Lemon Drop, Fuzzy Navel, Deep Blue, Hoboken from Lime Rickey collection) Basic Grey
Stamps:  (Flower and sentiment from Flower Framed Doodle) Purple Onion Designs
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko

Gorgeous! I love how the loud stripes just slightly ever peek out behind the frame.

Oh how I loved Lime Rickey...I used every teensy scrap :) This looks superb against the kraft, and look at all that fussy cutting! You should link it up to Moxie Fab's cutting/trimming challenge too :)

SUPER cute Jen! Love those striped scallops. I am determined to get into my stash this year too, I think we should ask the companies not to produce any nice papers this year and then we wouldn't be tempted, it's simple!
