Five For Friday

Welcome to my blog - today I have a card being featured at Tammy Tutterow's Five for Friday semi-monthly feature!  Today I played with her Posie Parts stamps.

supplies: white and clay cardstock, dps from Doodlebug Petite Prints 6" pads, Tammy's Posie Parts stamps, sentiment from PTI, various yellow buttons

I decided to stamp on petite prints design papers; their scale is perfect for these smallish parts, and I love the selection of color each pad gives us.  I fussy-cut all of the elements - it's something I enjoy doing anyway, and having all the little pieces to play with is much easier, in my opinion, than masking would have been.  To add some dimension to this otherwise simple design, I sewed on buttons to the centers of the flowers, and pulled up the petals.

This was fun to put together, and brought a little spring into my life until the real thing shows itself!

Be sure to visit Tammy's blog to see what my team-mates did this time!
