Pretty Presto


This week at Create with Connie and Mary, we’ve got an awesome sketch challenges for you! Remember, the sketch is your starting point, you can make it your own! As I did!

The base for my card is Daffodil Delight and it layered with Basic Gray and then a piece of Presto Patterns designer paper.

I made a central layer of Basic Gray and a piece of Play Date designer paper with a little added Chocolate Chip scalloped edge layer. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of Vellum cardstock. And now on to the flowers:

I first stamped the flowers from Fifth Avenue Floral in Jet Black StazOn on the Presto Patterns paper. I then sponged them with coordinating colours: Daffodil Delight, More Mustard, Old Olive. For the stamens on the front flower, I filled them in with Chocolate Chip and then with Crystal Effects.

Lastly, I added some strips of Chocolate Chip cardstock and some Basic Gray satin ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your creations so head on over to Create with Connie and Mary!
