Doodle Bloom Thinking of You


I managed to get some time in the Craft Cave this afternoon and put together this card for 3 challenges. I used the sketch from Stampin' Celebration, the colours from The Paper Players and the Thinking of You theme from The Card Concept (where I think my card would be considered Clean and Layered).  I paper pieced Altenew's Doodle Blooms (I LOVE these!) and added some washi tape to frame the top and bottom.  That's it for me today as it's time to head back to work but hopefully I'll get some good crafting time in over the weekend.  Have a lovely evening!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Kraft) Papertrey Ink, (Crisp Cantaloupe, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Flowers & leaves from Doodle Blooms) Altenew, (Sentiment from All Squared up) Avery Elle
Inks: (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Washi Tape:  K & Co.

This is beautiful and such a clever way to use the sketch and colors. The black makes for a striking backdrop and really draws attention to those gorgeous flowers. Thanks so much for joining us at The Paper Players.

Jen, I am in love with this card!! Your paper piecing is fantastic and I love the way the blooms seem to pop off the base panel. I also ADORE the bold polka dots at the top and bottom! FABULOUS work!
