Fabulous Paper Piecing Florets.....

Hello everyone: I'm here with another card created with an oldie but goodie stamp set from Stampin' Up!  This one came out back in the 2011 Summer Mini and it's called "Fabulous Florets".

I'm playing with The Paper Players paper piecing challenge and that's why I stamped my flowers and leaves on some scrap pieces from Lili of the Valley pattern paper, I added gold to the centers with a gel pen and a bit of detail with my Prismacolor pencils then, I fussy cut them.  The embossed panel behind them is from Tim Holtz and the branch is sponged with a leftover piece of card stock cut with a branch die. I saved it and it works really well as a stencil.
The little sentiment is from a retired SU set called ""Itty Bitty Banners", from the 2012 Catalog, it has a coordinating die set.

This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Sassy Succulents, the little flower from the Fabulous Florets set.

I would like to play with the following challenges.

Challenge #217 "Easter or Florals"
The Crafter's Cafe Challenge Blog

Challenge #29 "Flowers"

Thank you for stopping by, your comments always make my day.

You made the prettiest flowers with your delicately patterned paper just by adding a little shading. I recognized the sketch right away as it's one I love a lot and will save for future. You did a fabulous job for all the challenges, Maria!

Wow I had to look closely to see that you didn't color your flowers! A great selection of paper piecing! What a pretty layout these flowers look to be climbing your brick wall. The simple color pallet keeping this very classy, Well done!
