Plenty of Petals

Hi All,

I have been working on some simple cards with my Stampin' Up! stuff - it feels like it's been forever! I've been so bombarded by all the other things out there recently, I decided to go back to my "roots".

I actually made a card like this AGES ago, and I thought it turned out well, so I gave it another go.  My card base is Whisper White, and I couldn't find any Summer Sun CS, so I used some old Marigold Morning CS instead.  The top layer is Basic Black.  At the bottom of that, I stamped the sentiment from Wonderful Words in Versamark and embossed it with Winter White EP.

I used the SU stamp set Pick A Petal.  I stamped the line art petal in Basic Black ink onto 8 different patterns of the Pink Flamingo DSP.  I cut each petal out and stuck it to the black piece.  I also stamped the line art centre on a piece of white CS, cut it out, and sponged it with Blush Blossom and Cameo Coral inks, then stuck it to the centre of the flower.

There will be more SU cards over the next few days - hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

**Added: I thought I would try to elicit some sympathy and show you what I have to put up with when I am crafting. ( You can even see the supplies from the peacock card just under him to the right). Tiger.
