PPA #37 - Flower Theme

The Pals Paper Arts challenge #37 is Flower Themed cards :) Even though they do not ask you to use SU products, this is one challenge where I try to use my SU stamps..coz it is nice to think out side the box.

Amongst all my SU Stamps - I have two favorite flower stamps - A little happiness and Eastern Blooms..so I decided to be generous and do two cards for this challenge :)

For my first card using - A Little bit of Happiness. This card was inspired from this card that I saw on SCS. I used water color brush to create the effect she had done on her card....but then the rest of the design is mine :)

Here is my card,



I used my new SU Supplies - the new border punch from SAB, the new corduroy buttons from Occasions Mini (I think)..

Here is my second card using Eastern Blooms. I kept it simple. I just love this Cherry Blossom (I think??) flower image from this set.



I added some Stickles to the flower centers. Some PTI Raspberry Fizz ribbon and a tag with sentiment completes the statement.

Supplies:
Stamp - SU Eastern Blooms, Three Little Words, A Little bit of happiness
Paper - PTI Sweet blush, white, black CS. SU White, Red, Crushed Curry CS
Ink - Memento Black, SU Markers
Other - Nestabilities Tags, PTI Raspberry Fizz Ribbon, Water brush, Offray Yellow Ribbon, SU Corduroy brad, Prima Flowers, SU Modern Label punch, SU Border Punch.

I love the stickles in the cherry blossoms. And the soft pinks are perfect. Isn't that new SAB punch awesome! I have found myself punching scraps just because I like it so much.
