Papercraft Star Challenge #10

Hope you've all been enjoying the DT projects for this week's challenge at Papercraft Star. Our challenge this week was a clean and simple card sketch and here's what I came up with.
I found some new digi stuff to play with at Fred She Said and this is my very first attempt at using one of several downloads I bought. The flowers are from the Faux Foldy Flowers 1 set. These digis print out on a full sheet of cardstock in several sizes so you can stack--or not. :) Some of her downloads even contain SVG files!
Mine were printed on white cardstock and I inked them with Tattered Rose Distress Ink and then went over the embossed lines with Aged Mahogany. White brads covered in Scattered Straw Stickles and Peeled Paint leaves finish up the flowers. I put it all on a background of fun green plaid October Afternoon paper. I think it made for a cheery card! :)

Paper: Georgia Pacific White Cardstock, October Afternoon Fly a Kite
Stamps: Fred She Said Faux Foldy Flowers 1 Digital Stamps
Inks+: Tattered Rose, Aged Mahogany, and Peeled Paint Distress ink; Scattered Straw Distress Stickles
Tools: Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder, Spellbinders Wizard, Fiskars Paper Edgers Decorative Edged Scissors
Miscellaneous: Offray ribbon, brads

You have until tomorrow August 28th at noon EST to get your entry in for this weeks challenge and then make sure you come back and vote for your favorite entries from our players and DT between then and midnight Monday. Come dazzle us with your creative genius! :)
Have a blessed day!
