Papertrey Pallenge No. 5

The Papertrey Pals is a cardmaking and Papertrey Ink fan club. We are assigned a fun card "pallenge" and then we post a card. This week Liz M. challenged us to do a one layer card, which happens to be something that I already love to do! I prefer cards that are clean and simple. We were allowed to add one embellishment so I added lemon tart twill ribbon.

Here is my card. I stamped using PTI's brand new set, Year of Flowers: Daffodils.



Papertrey Ink just began a new monthly series of gorgeous flower stamp sets. Each month they will release a new stamp set featuring that month's official flower. So the flower for March is the daffodil. 

I stamped the daffodil flower and sentiment in versamark and then embossed in white. I traced a box around the card using a white gel pen. The cardstock is the new Hawaiian Shores color and the card is tied with a Lemon Tart twill ribbon. I love the new Hawaiian Shores color. It's so gorgeous and vibrant!

And since we're on the topic of flowers, here's another card I made using February's Year of Flower set: Violets. I was inspired by Debbie Olsen's card. I really love the new flower sets stamped and embossed. The intricate detail really pops when it is embossed!



Thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you a sunny day! :)
