Petals with Pizzazz!

Today I am going to show you a card inspired by the lovely Carol – she is one talented lady and I love to see how cleverly she puts together a card.

For this card I have used an Old Olive base. Have you noticed how addicted to Old Olive I have become? And to think I used to not like green! I now even own a jacket in this colour ... I digress! I stamped the large flower from the new Petal Pizzazz Stamp set in Almost Amethyst and a slightly smaller one from Pretty in Pink. The leaves and centre flower are of course Old Olive. A couple of brads, some of the delish striped grosgrain ribbon and some coordinating card stock later and the card was done.

I love how zingy the colours are together. I don’t know about you but I do what I call the window sill test with my cards – I put them on the window sill to see how they look from a distance – you don’t get to see the ones that fail but this one passed with absolute flying colours – it seemed to almost come to life in the sunlight.

I loved using this set and think it will be really versatile, the bold flowers will look great on both cards and scrap book pages.

Thanks for looking

Happy Cradting

Ohh Bekka, what can I say, Thank you for your lovely comments about my card (Blushing). I do love the colours you choose to use. Like you I wan't a green lover before SU, but I am finding myself using it more and more. LOL
