Coneflower Greeting - Stampin' Up! Go To Greetings

   The Festive Friday challenge is always a good one to check out for a great theme challenge.  I love the "celebration" days they choose to highlight and their inspiration lists always contain fun elements to use to create.  This time around they are celebrating World Bee Day and I was able to fit quite a few elements from the list onto my card but alas no bee!  I didn't think I had a bee image and of course realized I did after the card was already finished.  Oh well.  But that's the great things about these challenges is you don't have to theme your card for the day; as long as you use at least 3 of the items you're good to go!

  I used flowers, yellow, black, embossing (2 kinds!), silhouette, and twine from the list.  The fun DSP is the Tea Boutique 6x6 paper and while it has some nice pastel-y patterns there are also a few more bold choices.  I loved this floral one in Sweet Sorbet.  I cut a tag to put behind my big coneflower silhouette from the Harvest dies set.

  A little embossing with the retired Subtle embossing folder as well as a heat embossed sentiment from Go To Greetings brings some texture to the card. 

  Some little details like the scalloped edge, torn layers and dot embellishments bring this card together.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?

  1. Such a cheery card, Amanda! This pattern, from Tea Boutique, is one of my favorites. It works perfectly as a backdrop for the bold floral die cut. I love the tag design and the yummy texture. Thank you so much for playing at Festive Friday this week!

  2. This is a wonderful card. It was a great idea to place your beautiful silhouette on that bright and bold tag. I love the yellow and white strip on the right and the way you placed the sentiment. Thanks so much for playing with us at Festive Friday.

  3. I love the silhouette and fabulous layout. I love the touch of yellow and white stripe and all that wonderful texture. so glad you shared this with us at Festive Friday this week

  4. I love how you used the Tea cup DSP and used a silhouette to have a bold focal point. Very Clever. So glad you played along with us for the Festive Friday Challenge.

  5. That silhouette style die cut really pops against that bright paper. Thanks for joining us at the Festive Friday Challenge.
