Petal Potpourri... Purple Fantasy

The watercolor flowers on this card are simply gorgeous, don't you agree??

I can just imagine the Stampin' Up artist sitting down to paint these flowers!
How neat it would be to have that kind of talent!

We start our card with a Blackberry Bliss card base - this card base actually measures 5 1/2" x 7 1/2", scored at 3 1/4" for the front of the card base.  We added a piece of Whisper White card stock to the inside of the card to make it stand out (and so that a written sentiment could be seen), then rounded the edges of the card with our Project Life Corner Rounder Punch.

On the front of the card, we added a piece of the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper - those little purple flowers just make me happy!

Next, we stamped that gorgeous flower (from the Petal Potpourri Stamp set) in Rich Razzleberry ink and punched it out with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch.  I tried the Blackberry Bliss ink first, which is supposed to be the color of the watercolor flowers on this DSP, but it just seemed to harsh - so, I chose Rich Razzleberry ink instead!
  Then, we layered this piece on top of a Blackberry Bliss circle die-cut with our Circle Framelits.  We also added that fun Daffodil Delight Button from our Brights Designer Buttons to the center of the flower.

Finally, we added another strip of the Painted Blooms DSP behind the flower/circle piece and flagged the end of the piece with our 1" Square Punch.
