fabulous florets with a sketch and a color challenge

Tonight is my monthly card making night and I decided that I would use only retiring stamp sets to showcase some of the "good ones" that we will be soon saying goodbye to! I chose the stamp sets I had in my stash that aren't currently sold out. Yesterday, I shared the set Lacy & Lovely in a quick and easy card and today I used Fabulous Florets as the second card for card night.

I decided to have a little fun with some blog challenges this week in creating this card...

The papercrafting challenge blog, Can You Case It? is having a challenge to create thank you cards! The card below certainly fits the theme with the "Thank You So Much" from the Lots of Thanks stamp set. 

For color inspiration I used the color combo from The Paper Players (PP195). So soft and pretty!

For a little help with my card layout, I used part of the sketch from Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration


As you can see I cut part of the edge off on the right of the card and showing through underneath is some DSP. This just gives a fun twist on the card!

On the inside, I also added a small scallop border using the Scallop Dotted Ribbon Border Punch.

Heidi, I have enjoyed your blog for a long time, and was excited to see your entry in our CanYouCaseIt.com challenge. I like how you incorporated all of these challenges into this card. The rhinestones in the larger circle is such a small, yet great touch! Thanks for playing- hope to see you in another one of our challenges!
