Paper Players....Thank You

Happy Thursday Peeps!!

Today's card share I made using the challenge this week at

which just happens to be my favorite, a sketch:

I recently had a comment posted on my blog about another card I made using this Floral Essence set, the commenter stated that this set came with an unrelated punch and not dies to cut the flowers.
It is true that there is no dies to mach this set and that you must fussy cut out the flower if you want to use it in the way I normally do.
However, the punch that is it available as a bundle, does punch out one of the images in the set.
I do sympathize with the commenter, I would have preferred dies as well but I don't mind fussy cutting, I actually enjoy it most times. But I do know not everyone does and many can't because of
various reasons, eyesight or hand problems etc.

I wanted to show case a card made using the flower and Punch
The flowers here are punched with the Perennial Punch from the Bundle.

I stamped my image several times using Versamark ink onto Flkiry Flamingo card stock.
I embossed with white embossing powder and punched out.
I used my waterbrush and Flirty Flamingo ink pad and added
some more color to the petals.
I did the same with the leaves onto Pear Pizzazz card stock.

The base of the card is Crumb Cake  
followed with a piece of embossed Crumb Cake with the 
Basket Weave EF that I matted with some Whisper White card stock.
I added a strip of polka dotted Crumb Cake DSP from a retired Neutrals pack.

The sketch shows the corner flower and top flower cut off, which was my intention 
when I started, but after putting them on my card I could no bring myself to do it. LOL!

The sentiment on here comes from the Daisy Delight stamp set.
I added Perennial Essence Floral Centers to my flowers. 
Love those fuzzy yellow pieces.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Lovely florals, Vicki! I really love the Crumb Cake embossed's perfect to allow your flowers to take center stage! And of course, the polka dots finish it off nicely! Thanks so much for playing with my sketch at the Players this week!

I agree with Wendy. Your flower cards are gorgeous and this is no exception. I love it. The pink flowers are so pretty and just pop against the embossed crumb cake background. Thanks so much for sharing. Have a great weekend.
