No Stamping!

PrintMFTWSC166



It wasn't planned, but I ended up with a card that has no stamping!  I used MFT dies: Mini Rolled Roses, Dizzy Doily & Royal Leaves. The background is dry embossed with a Cuttlebug folder & the sentiment is done with stickers. I used the current MFT Wednesday Sketch & Color Palette Challenge 3: Kraft, Grapesicle, Berrylicious & Sour Apple. I had 2 old pieces of printed paper close to the lavender & blue colors, so alternated them for my row of rolled roses attached to a strip of ribbon. A scrap of green cardstock was used to diecut the leaves.  One of the printed papers has shades of both colors, so I used that for my background piece. 
The dry embossing gives a bit of texture, although hard to see in the picture. I buy gems in the big packages on sale & used a fairly large one in each flower center--love the look! I'd call the paper a watercolor look, so I'm entering my card in the new Virginia's View Challenge.
     

Lots of snippets, so I'll also enter at Pixies Snippets Playground. Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog--your comments always brighten my day.
