I finally broke out my The Sweet Life stamp set, in order to play along with the Play Date Cafe challenge this week.
I’m not an expert on these flowers, obviously. They were a little tricky for me to line them all up for the coordinated whole, even with the ‘cheat sheet’ from the PTI forum. I practiced and practiced first on scratch paper, but I still need lots more practice, I think. But I don’t think they’re terrible for my first try! And it was fun to practice with them.
I used some Fine Linen striped paper on the bottom of the card. And I figured I would get acquainted again with my long-neglected Edgers #1 die! Also making an appearance here are a couple of stamps from the Waltzingmouse Say It Loud stamp set. And I took quite a bit of liberty in the color shades, I think. Hope it’s not too much of a stretch.
Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
