SWEET SLUMBER WITH PIZZAZZ

I've been in a creative slump all week and thought I'd give it another try this afternoon. My day job leaves me wiped out in the evenings so I was thrilled to have this three day weekend! Hopefully, there will be much more stamping happening!

I paired today's OCC Sketch Challenge hosted by Laurie Schmidlin with the stamp set Petal Pizzazz and the new textured designer paper, Sweet Slumber. I think everything is pretty self-explanatory, but did want to point out that I used alot of stampin' dimensionals to give different depths to the flower arrangement.

RECIPE
Stamps: Petal Pizzazz, Sincere Salutations
Paper: Sweet Slumber textured DP, Baja Breeze and So Saffron CS
Ink: Ruby Red, So Saffron, Baja Breeze, and Basic Black
Embellishments: Ruby Red Brads, So Saffron Button, Flower Fusion Too
Tools: 1" and 3/4" Circle Punches
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals

Love this card Nancy - the colours are fabulous and I love what you've done with the challenge.

I felt drawn to this card immediately - must be the bright colours of the flowers against the lovely background papers. I hope we'll get them here in Australia.
