Sweet Friend

 Simon restocked their Memory Box solid paper pads recently and I grabbed a couple more color-ways of them before they sold out again.  Here's a card using the Vibrant Violet collection, which ranges from mauvy pinks to pinky purples.  They are scrumptious colors!

supplies: white, black, Memory Box papers from Vibrant VioletsLush Greens, and a pale yellow from Sunny Oranges collection pads, Altenew Garden Picks layering dies, sentiment from Wplus9 Hand Lettered Hello, Sunny Studio Lattice Frilly Frame dies, adhesive foam squares

The main flowers use 4 shades of a color, so I mixed up various shades leaning towards pink, and used the purples for the tinier flowers.  After arranging everything to my liking I used a sheet of Press 'n' Seal to hold it together, then flipped it and added foam squares to the reverse.  Then I just placed it over my lattice background, peeled away the Press 'n' Seal, and added my sentiment.

Using these papers for layering dies are exactly why I got these solid paper pads, and I am really impressed with the lovely range of colors in each one!  They are a little more expensive than other pads, but you get 4 sheets of each of 12 shades of color in each one, so I think it's a fair price.

Thanks so much for coming by today.
