Perennial View - Stampin' Up! Pretty Perennials

   My card for today is inspired by 2 challenges; the layout is from Inspire Create Challenge and the colors and flowers theme is inspired by the Library Challenge which gives us a book cover for inspiration; Room With a View by E.M. Forester.


  I had this one looking different in my head but I think the final result is growing on me.  I took my colors directly from the book cover and used the Pretty Perennials stamp set to create the floral background.  I combined the stamping with a few of the coordinating die cuts.  

  Once the background panel was finished I layered 2 lengths of crinkled seam binding ribbon across before adhering my embossed sentiment panel with dimensionals.  A double layered fork bow (I'm obsessed with these lately it seems!) is added to the sentiment circle with a glue dot.

  I can't decide if the Mossy Meadow stitched circle should have been Soft Sea Foam instead...what do you think?

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?

  1. Lovley colour combi - that fabulous die-cut circle is exactly the right shade and looks great with the white sentiment. Thanks for joining The Library.
