Celebrate Today


I'm finally getting to post this card I made last week.  Things have been busy with work and the end of the school year for the girls.

I've been wanting to use this color combo for some time now.  I love Pure Poppy on Kraft and Hawaiian Shores with Pure Poppy, so I thought this would work.

I made the flower by stamping polka dots in Hawaiian Shores onto vellum.  I then cut them out with my cuttlebug flower dies.  I love how it looks paired with this image from the PTI 3rd anniversary set.  The little blue dots are felt pieces that I punch with a regular hole punch.  Gotta love that PTI felt!

Stamps:  Polka Dot Basics II, Round and Round (anniversary set)
Paper:  Kraft, Hawaiian Shores, vellum
Ink:  Hawaiian Shores, Pure Poppy, Memento Tuxedo Black

What a gorgeous color combo, it definitely rocks! And I love the placement of your vellum flower over the stamped image. Also love those Label 10 nesties!

This is really beautiful Sara! I thought the little felt circles were the leftover holes you get when you punch out the PTI eyelet border, I have a bunch of those sitting on my desk waiting to be used ;)

My eye was immediately drawn to that fun puffy flower and the awesome felt polka dots! You always do something that makes me think,"WOW. What a great idea!" The colors do go well together Sara as always. Love the red brads!

Hey Sara, was wondering where you were! Beautiful card! I love that color combo and I thought that was a store bought flower until I read through your post. Beautiful!

What fun polkas! I especially love the sweet polka'd flower you've created. I haven't tried Hawaiian Shores with Pure Poppy (one of my favs!) yet. Thanks for the headsup, I'll have to try it soon! :>
