Petal Parade for the Paper Craft Crew

Welcome everyone to another wonderful Wednesday! Such a lovely Autumn day here in Melbourne today - clear skies, and 27 degrees (Celsius!). With the nights being a bit cooler and the tree leaves changing colour its a lovely time of year :-)

Today's card is for the sketch this week at the Paper Craft Crew.

The Design Team have come up with some fabulous cards and I hope you can take time to check them all out and maybe you will be inspired to have a go too!

For my card, I wanted to use some of the FREE items available as part of  Saleabration. So how many can you see? LOL! That's right, quite a few :-)

There is the Decorative Dots EF, some Sweet Sorbet DSP and of course the fabulous Petal Parade stamp set. So that's nearly a whole card made from free products :-)

Today I started from the DSP and used that as the inspiration for the colour choices. For the card base I used Pool Party card stock and then layered with the embossed white layer.Next I stamped the largest panel with the Petal Parade and using Pistachio Pudding and Pool Party and stamped the raised images separately. The Crisp Cantaloupe circle I actually cut out by hand as I wanted to include the varied edges and the Pool Party flower I punched out.  Next I sponged a little pool Party ink on half a Paper Doilly and put this underneath.

For the greeting I turned to an old favourite set, Hello Lovely and cut off the part of the image not needed before layering onto the Crisp Cantaloupe banner. As you can see, lots of dimensionals ( as usual!) and a few sequins to finish :-)
