PPA108 & Paper Players #60 - CAS Style & Sketch - Friendly Phrases

This week the Pals Paper Arts challenge is CAS Element of Style - PPA108 - Create a CAS (clean and simple) card and round some corners - or adorn some corners.......whatever you need to do to take the edge off! To join the fun click here. 

The Paper Players challenge is a CAS Sketch PP60 designed by the talented LeAnne Pugliese. To join the fun with the sketch click here.

After my original post, based on this sketch, I got another idea for a card and than when I saw the challenge at the Pals Paper Arts, I thought why not try to combine the two. 

Like I said, it's all about having fun and go with the ideas that come to you. I did focus this time around on Clean and Simple since both challenges have this element. I took the stamp set Friendly Phrases and combined 3 stamp phrases for this card.

First I stamped the words in Real Red ink and used my 1 1/4" circle punch. Than, I used my 1 3/8" punch to cut 3 basic black circles for matting behind it.

For the center, I used the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch for the Whisper White flower and than used the Boho Blossom Punch with Real Red cardstock and the little flower on top. Added a basic gem to top it off.

I used the embossing folder, Finial Press to add some texture to the background and for the ribbon, I used 5/8" satin Basic Black. Of course to soften the edges for the Pals Paper Arts challenge, I used my corner rounder on the bottom of the card and around the sentiment section.

Last but not least, I used my stampin dimensionals under the sentiment section to pop it out a little for the main attraction. Hope you enjoy!! This stamp set has several cute saying!!
