I was totally inspired by this card made by Danielle Flanders:
I knew the minute I saw it that I wanted to make some paper just like it for this week's challenge! I made one card in a black print on vintage cream card stock using the Background Basics Newsprint stamp set. I was so very inspired that I wanted to create a second card! This card uses dark chocolate print on vintage cream card stock using the Background Basics Text Style stamp set. For this card, I stamped the largest of the Polka Dot Basics dots in Fine Linen ink and then "Kissed" the polka dot stamp using the script text style stamp. I trimmed a little bit off of my Doily Details die cut this time around as well.
I made the rolled flowers using a Die-Namics die. For the smaller sized flowers, I found I could simply paper punch a smaller sized circle and place that on top of my die, resulting in a smaller, but still very rollable spiral.
I thought about cutting some smaller spirals out by hand, but history proves I don't do so well with that, so I was very pleased to find I could just use the same die for all my flowers.
I placed a circle of scrap fabric on top of the Doily. I made my own stick pin by gluing a couple of pearls onto a ball pin that I had in my sewing supplies. I love the look of stick pins, but can't seem to bring myself to pay the premium for the good ones. :)
