Countdown to Confetti + CASE Study! Petals 'n Posies


Hello! I'm so excited to be sharing a new card this afternoon - not only am I guest designing for the fabulous CASE Study challenge this month, but Jen's letting me share some new Reverse Confetti goodies with you a few hours early!!


The March Muse is the amazing Joni Andaya. Here is the inspiration for this week...

I just loved those bold black stripes and the banner layer...here's my take...


I used a foam mat and shaping tool to soften and shape the flowers. There are two new Reverse Confetti sets and MATCHING die sets on this card! I've stamped the flowers and laurel from Petals 'n Posies in Memento Luxe inks, then shaded over top with Prismacolor Pencils.

Beautiful Banners is a must have! I also shaded the banner with pencils. The stripes from So Stripey were stamped on vellum. The background is ombre paper. 

Here's a peek inside...
