Keep Smiling

Just playing today, with some gorgeous papers from Simon's April Card Kit, along with the largest flower from their Partial Cut Flowers dies.  I love how the black makes these bright colors pop, and then adding the bias stripe takes it up another notch!

Keep Smiling

All papers are from a Simple Stories DIY Boutique paper pad, the sentiment from Simon's Thinking of You stamp set, and the flowers are the largest of their Partial Cut Flowers dies.  I centered them with a Doodlebug enamel dot.  

I cut the flowers from the floral panel and trimmed off the right side of it, then die-cut more of the flowers in the solid colors and hand-cut them away so I could glue them to the floral panel.  In hindsight, I could have just hand trimmed the solids and placed them over a plain floral panel, and the effect would have been the same.  I'll have to keep practicing with this set to use it to its full advantage, but in the meantime, the individual flowers are still pleasing.  

Thanks for visiting today.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
