From today’s inspiration piece, I took the colors Soft Sky, Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose and Whisper White. I also knew I wanted to incorporate rectangles and circles. Here is what I came up with.


The card base is a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Soft Sky cardstock folded in half.

Next is a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Old Olive cardstock followed by a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. The white layer was dry embossed with the Swiss Dot folder for the cuttlebug. Part of an 1″ Apricot circle was added to the upper left hand side. It was layered with a paper pierced 3/4″ Regal Rose circle and topped of with an Ice Circle Rhinestone brad.

The base of the main panel is a 3″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Soft Sky cardstock. On top of it are three 1 3/8″ x 2 3/4″ pieces of Whisper White cardstock. The panels were stamped with the flower from Live your Dreams. The flower was colored with markers (Apricot Appeal – Pumpkin Pie, Pretty in Pink – Regal Rose, Certainly Celery – Old Olive), sprayed with water mister and stamped on the white cardstock. A border was paper pierced on each panel and Striped Pumpkin Ribbon tied around all three.

The sentiment was stamped with Regal Rose ink on White cardstock. the lines as well as the smaller flower from Live your Dreams were stamped over the sentiment in Soft Sky and then punched out with the 1 1/4″ circle punch. That was layered on a 1 3/8″ Soft Sky and a Regal Rose Scallop circle. The white circle still looked a little empty so I added a paper pierced 1/2″ Soft Sky circle along with a 1/4″ Apricot circle and small green rhinestone brad to the bottom right of it.

 Sorry this is so late. Rebecca had an award ceremony. Two more days and school is out here in the Okaloosa district.

I got to run and get groceries now! Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles
