heading on out!...pp#31

hey tracey, momma, friends old and new!

today at the paper plunge, we challenge you to use the retiring in color colors of 2013-2015.  some very favorite colors of mine are leaving the stampin' up! collection...strawberry slush, crisp cantaloupe, baked brown sugar and pistachio pudding.  as a matter of fact, those are the exact colors i used for this card...



i know, tracey, a total fussy-cut extravaganza!  i couldn't help myself!  i just love the layers and look of the popped out flowers!  one little trick...i decided to use my black marker and color in the back of the flower, well at least the top layer.  kinda gave it a more finished look...




I also decided to enter this card in the paper craft crew #144 challenge.  here is the sketch they are challenging us to use this week...


 update...i have been chosen as the feature artisan on the paper craft crew challenge!  yay me!!  


"i am in charge of how i feel and today i choose happiness."

until next time-
peace be with you.

  1. Hi Leslie, I LOVE this card! Gorgeous colors and the background with the flowers makes me think of flowers lined up along the fence line growing. The fussy cutting definitely makes the flowers pop. Thanks for playing along with the Paper Craft Crew!

  5. What a stunning card, Leslie! Fussy-cutting really makes those layers of flowers pop. One could be walking down a country lane and see flowers peeking out through fences like this. A beautiful combination of colours, textures and elements. Thanks so much for sharing your creation with us for this week's Paper Craft Crew Challenge.
