Make it Snappy

Oh my do you ever need a card in a hurry?  Well I often do and the 'Petal Party' 30-113set from Penny Black is just perfect for such times, this card I made in a jiffy whilst chatting with a friend and the bonus was that I used up all my scraps of card.

I had a scrap of pearl scalloped card onto which I stamped the leaves from 'Petal Party' 30-113 using May Green 170 Faber Castell Big Brush Marker, I then lightly shaded with Pitt Pastel 170 and adhered to a scrap of 'Fern Green' 05-002 mix and match cardstock that had been stamped with the sentiment using versa fine onyx black ink and edged with black fine liner pen.

I then stamped the flower onto scrap card coloured with Faber Castell big brush markers Dark Chrome Yellow 109  and Pale Geranium Lake 121. I then cut it out and outlined with black ink, added microbeads to the centre and mounted onto the scalloped card.  To finish I then mounted the green panel onto 'Fall Festival' 16-002 mix and match cardstock. So quick and simple to do!

Thanks for visiting me today.

Hugs Cathy

An absolutely striking combination - love the deep orange & olive green with the white.

Gorgeous card. I like the way you've outlined the flower in black to enhance it. Excellent multitasking skills!
