Petals & Blends Birthday - Stampin' Up! Petal Passion DSP - Fab Friday 133

  And we are back with another fun Fab Friday challenge to kick off the weekend!  It's a sketch this time around and has so many possibilities.  I know I say that every time but it's always true!  I wouldn't lie to my stamping friends would I?  This one you can highlight the big background panel or make the smaller forefront element be the star....see like I said, so many possibilities!

  I've seen so many gorgeous cards made with the Petal Passion DSP from the Occasion catalog that I wanted to try my hand at using the Stampin' Blends to color in the bold flowers of one of the designs. I had some time this afternoon before school got out to sit and have some coloring therapy.  Wow!  I am in love with how it turned out!

 The colors are so vibrant and rich and it was really easy too!  After I finished coloring the background panel I just couldn't bring myself to cover any of it up with the smaller panel of the sketch.  So I thought that a cut out frame would be in keeping with the sketch feel.  I tried a few different cardstock colors but landed on Basic Black to echo the bold outlines of the flowers.  Using the Layering Ovals framelits I cut a scalloped frame.

  The banner is stamped with the Sunshine Sayings birthday greeting and is then tucked under the edge of the frame.  A fork bow made with the Calypso Coral shimmer ribbon (free during Sale-a-Bration) is all the embellishment this card needs.  

  This isn't a stamping heavy card but I had a lot of fun making it nonetheless!  I don't know if I'll be able to bring myself to send this one least for a little while until I can color some more panels!

  Check out what the rest of the Fab Friday Design Team has come up with and then join in the fun!
