A Little Hello

Hello, all!  I trust your weekend is off to a great start!  I'm here today to share a card I made using some  Penny Black stamps, combining them with some design papers in colors that I love.

A Little Hello, June 22

I knew I wanted to paper-piece this floral stamp called Flower Poetry, and since I love this little ditzy floral from MME's Collectable Notable collection, I pulled the colors from it.  So I stamped the Poetry stamp 5 times, on pale and medium aqua, a yellow, a gold and an orange solid, then cut the flowers and leaves out and pieced them back onto the pale aqua base, attaching the flowers only in their centers so I could lift the petals a bit for dimension.  (I also used a marker to add a bit of tone-one-tone color to them and added some MME enamel dots to the centers of 2 of the flowers).  Then I framed the pieced circle with a Nesties scalloped circle die in orange.  My other little panels are papers from MME's The Sweetest Thing Tangerine Collection that I thought went well with the floral panel.  Lastly I stamped my sentiment from the Friendship set and cut it into a little banner.

Thanks for taking the time to visit me today!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
