TCC153 Lovely Lavender

 Happy Wednesday, stampers!  There's a new Card Concept Challenge up today, look at this beauty:

Isn't that gorgeous?  It gave me a chance to use my brand-new, coming-in-the-new-catalog stamp set Hand-Penned Petals!  I made a mini-slimline card in the Clean and Layered style; the size is 6"x 3 1/2":


I stamped the florals in Memento Black and filled them in with Mint Macaron and Highland Heather.  The stamped background is the script from (old) French Foliage in Smoky Slate; the beautiful DSP is part of the Hand-Penned suite, and it is GORGEOUS.  You will definitely be seeing a lot more of this!  Plus I diecut it with the new Basic Borders dies...they are amazing!  I added a few little Genial Gems in Mint Macaron and a gingham bow:


And I almost forgot....I freehand cut some Brushed Silver cardstock into a bucket shape, then embossed it with an embossing folder and added some Craft White and Basic Gray shading!  I used the remaining piece of diecut DSP to embellish the inside:


I am also entering this at the TGIF challenge, where they are looking for slimline cards!


I hope you'll play along with our pretty inspiration this week...be sure to stop by the Card Concept blog to see how the other designers interpreted this photo, then share yours with us too!  Be sure to tell us your "style"...you can see all the styles listed on the challenge blog!  Thanks for popping in today! Enjoy your day and be blessed!

It's wonderful to see Stampin' Up keeping up with everything trendy and fresh - this image would be a dream to color!
You've done so beautifully, LeAnne - AND created the perfect [gray] container for it!
