 For the Birthday Sale in the Paper Garden Projects Store this week: 

About my cards:

stpdottydaisy2I used a Stampendous clear set called Dotty Daisy on my cards.  I love the background stamp that comes in this set.  Because its clear its so easy to place.

I stamped on Prism paper (medium and light suede and Frosted Teal) with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.

For the first card, I used the Spellbinders Ribbon Slide die and inked it before I cut and embossed to get the dark brown boarder. 

The scalloped edges were made with the Threading Water Border Punch.  I ran the teal strip through a Swiss Dots embossing folder.

I stamped a few of the flowers in the set on teal and cut out around them to make a corner accent.  I added bronze rhinestones to the centers.

stpdottydaisy3For the second card, I used the same papers and inks.  I stamped one of the larger flowers and cut and matted it with spellbinders circle and scalloped circle dies.

It has been such a fun month and I’ve really enjoyed seeing every one’s creations and visiting some new blogs. 

I hope you decide to play along with this challenge too!
