Stampin’ Up! Australia - Stampin’ Up! Picture Perfect + English Garden DSP


Welcome to this week's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

Here are the essentials:

  • Soft Suede & Mossy Meadow are in the English Garden DSP pack so since they are 2 out of the 3 colours this week, why not use them!?
  • I layered the leaves for a soft effect against the flower from the Picture Perfect stamp set. 
  • The Watermelon Wonder ribbon is slightly sheer, so to colour block, I added some Watermelon Wonder card stock underneath it. Looks perfect! 

Here are our colours for this week:

Here is the sketch from Mojo Monday:

  1. That flower is gorgeous Alison and I love the layered metallic doily too. Great choice of papers and ribbon - I love we both used them and our cards look so different.

  2. Such a lovely card. That flower is beautiful. Thanks for playing along with Mojo Monday!

  3. Gorgeous, lovely, beautiful, pretty...those are just a few words to describe your creation! The silver doily makes the perfect frame for your gorgeous rose and silver rhinestone ties it together perfectly. The satin ribbon is another smart, delicate accent!

  4. This rose is so pretty done in any color! Love the silver touches in the doily and rhinestone.

  5. Wow! Great papers and layout with this beautiful flower! There's a nice balance of these colors here, too - very impressive card!
