Pale Plum Petals


Here's my take on the OWH sketch challenge #254. I found these pre-made flowers in my stash of unused elements and decided to finally put them onto a card. The SU! flowers were first stamped with Versamark on pale plum cardstock, then embossed with white ep and hand cut. I pulled them from the box, snipped the petals apart and curled them with a bone folder. I added some amethyst bling to the centers from Pizzazz Aplenty and popped them up on foam dimensionals. The ep is from Sizzix/Hero Arts and the sentiment is also from Hero Arts. The smaller circle is a snippet from PTI Plum Pudding. It feels good to be working on cleaning up all of this stash, so I'll keep at it until it's gone. (if I live long enough! LOL)

Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a fabulous Friday!

You have made the focal point of this super CAS with two unused elements of your stash... You are genial!!
The colours are fabulous, so sweet but not mawkish!! Love the circle with the purple background, it match very beautiful with these lovely 3D flowers! The curled petals look great! Well done!

Very pretty colors and I love how you did the flowers. You are a master of fussy cutting. LOL I don't think any of us could possibly live long enough to clear up our stash. I know I would not want to live that long. Enjoy your weekend.
