CR84FN35, CAS-ual Fridays 15, & FTL 153


Good evening, folks!  I'm barely squeezing in a card for the color challenge at CR84FN!  I combined these lovely hues with the sketch at Clean & Simple Stamping, which has teamed up this week with CAS-ual Fridays.  What a great sketch!











I inked up my new set from Stampin' Up! called Fabulous Florets with Certainly Celery and Wisteria Wonder.  I was very excited to see this beautiful shade of lavender as one of the new In Colors.  

The flowers were easy to fussy cut and pop up for dimension.  I stamped a sentiment from PTI's Signature Series:  Butterfly in gray and stitched around the edge of the panel.

The card base is Wisteria Wonder debossed with PTI's Cane Print impression plate, which is already a new favorite of mine!  I added some Basic Gray ribbon in place of the horizontal strip on the main panel in the sketch.

All supplies from Stampin' Up! unless noted
Cardstock:  Wisteria Wonder, Vintage Cream (Papertrey Ink)
Stamps:  Fabulous Florets, Signature Series:  Butterfly (Papertrey Ink)
Ink:  Certainly Celery, Wisteria Wonder, Antique Pewter (Clearsnap)
Tools:  Cane Print impression plate (Papertrey Ink), corner rounder
Accessories:  Basic Gray ribbon, thread

I'm off to link this up before the challenge expires at CR84FN, but you still have plenty of time to play with the sketch!  Thanks for stopping by tonight!
