After much play I finally came up with the pictured project.  It is CASE’d from the Stampin’ Up! 2014-2015 Annual Catalog (page 67).  I have loved this card from the first time I saw the catalog.  So, I played around with different colors and ‘textures’.  I chose to use the Zag Zig embossing folder for added ‘texture’ without making an embossed impression in the cardstock, instead of the background stamp used in the example.  I used Washi Tape instead of lace at the top of the panel and a button in the center of the middle flower.  The bows were made from the Thick Baker’s Twine.  This twine can be separated into several thicknesses.  The first level of separation is a thinner twisted strand of thread and the final level is a very thin wavy strand.  I took two of these very thin wavy strands and threaded the button and tied a small bow on top.  The larger bow was made with four of the thin wavy strands.  I dipped the edges of the layers in Baked Brown Sugar ink pad to make them pop off the background. 

Here are the details (all products Stampin’ Up! unless otherwise stated):
Stamp sets: Flower Shop and Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper:  Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Whisper White
Ink:  Baked Brown Sugar
Misc:  Zig Zag TIEF, Hexagon punch (tag banner cut), Pansy punch, Baked Brown Sugar Thick Baker’s Twine, Sweet Sadie Washi Tape, Button (unknown), Mini Glue Dots, Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals

Now it is your turn to join in on the fun.  You have until April 28, 2015
