PPA98 - Sketch Challenge using Delicate Doilies and Punches

Surprise!!! It's another fun week at the Pals Paper Arts website with a wonderful sketch created by: Margaret Moody

They always have a great new challenge every Thursday and this is one of them. Join the fun by creating a card based off of the sketch above and link it to their website. It's easy to link up and all you need to do is create a card. Here is mine below......... 

This little stamped image comes from one of the newest stamp sets called: Delicate Doilies  which is coming out July 1....yeah!! and can easily be punched out using the Doily Triple Layer Punch......isn't cute!!! 

The stamp set goes so well with this DSP called: Love Letter which is retiring June 30.

I than cut out a 1 1/2" circle using So Saffron and the Circle Scissor Plus to use as a mat behind it. Yes, I did use stampin dimensionals under the punch out and used it again under the middle square, and last but not least under the sentiment.

I find that by using the dimensionals on top of an embossed cardstock holds much better verses using regular adhesive and putting the sentiment on top. It also makes the card pop up more.

Also, I used the Finial Press embossing folder to emboss the whisper white cardstock.

For the leaves, I used the Two-Step Bird and combined it with the leaves from the Build a Blossom set using Old Olive cardstock and ink. This set comes in handy for alot of things.

You may be asking what about the sentiment.....well I used the stamp set called: Thanks for Caring that was in the Occasions Mini Catalog that ended April 30 but no longer available.

Important note.... the Summer Mini that is currently available has many beautiful items...get them before they are no longer available ends Aug 31st.
