a note to my dear friend 22

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, March 5, 2017 @ 1:00 AM | , ,

Hi Everyone! Today I'm featuring this card on the Poppystamps blog. If you have a chance, please stop by! I'm sharing this card featuring  fun dies from the New Mini Release including the Atessa Collage and Stitched Butterfly Trio dies.
I created a clean and simple card. For the background, I used the Atessa Collage die to cut a piece of white cardstock then layered it on top of a piece of green cardstock:
I stamped one of the many sentiments from the Friends and Flowers stamp set then embellished with a layered stitched butterfly that was die cut using a couple different sized Stitched Butterfly Trio dies:
For color inspiration, I'm joining along with the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge:
I've been painting Garden Roses inspired by Daniel Edmondson. I have three different versions:

I'm linking one of my paintings to the Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have enjoyed my project and please be sure to stop by the Poppystamps blog.
Be Sweet ;)

The apple green card is sheer perfection. Crisp vibrant; it reminds me of Spring. Love the roses, they are all gorgeous and my favourite is the soft peachy/apricot painting. Thanks for the inspiration.
