PRETTY AMAZING RASPBERRY TART

I got a chance to create with some of the goodies that Connie Collins sent to me (see my previous post)! This is my first time working with Raspberry Tart DP, and I love it! I used one of my favorite stamp sets, Pretty Amazing ... and Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #3.

Details about this card that may not be obvious in the photograph ... a) the perimeter of the large flower print dp panel is paper pierced, b) the large flower was stamped off in Pretty in Pink and randomly stamped on the Whisper White panel, c) the hummingbird image is paper pieced by stamping in in Jet Black Staz-On onto Raspberry Tart DP and cut out, d) the large flower was created by stamping it three times onto Whisper White CS ... once in Real Red, again in Rose Red, and again in Pretty In Pink. All three layers were cut out with scissors, attached with a Pink Circle Brad, and adhered with a Pop-Up Glue Dot. You can see an excellent tutorial for the flat-tailored bow by Joanne Basil HERE.
