Sentimental Shaker for Scrapmaster's Paradise

Not only did I have the honor of my card being chosen for the 100th Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combo Challenge, I was invited to Guest Design for their 105th challenge. Hope you will join in this week!

Naturally I wanted to use the fantastic stamps I won, but there were so many possibilities! I finally settled on the Round Sentiments set, plus the two Little Birdie digi stamps the Scrapmaster also sent. I also used some of the fab Echo Park paper I bought from her.

I honestly tried to keep this simple. I created the cut-outs in SCAL, but cut the rest of the pieces on my papercutter (and fussy-cut the birdie border). The final card size is 6x4, and I used 6x6 paper, so added a piece to make 8 inches, and covered the seam with a ribbon.

I made sections with foam pop-tape so that each circle contains a different flower mix. The flowers & inside message section (see below) were punched using a floral Martha Stewart border/corner punch set. I love how many flowers I get! The flowers are made of a white paper that I inked with matching orange & green on opposite sides. I edged the foam with the Chinese Orange Copic.

    I really liked the card and how the flowers become shakers themselves. The color combo is so cheerie. It made me smile. Mom
