Five Petal Build a Blossom - CQC146 & SSC265

Today's card comes to you from Colour Q 146, and Saturday Sketch Challenge 265 over at the Stamping 411 Blog.

Colour Q wants us to use Red, Pear, Kraft, Black and White.  I used a minimal amount of kraft.  The center of the flower is inked with Crumb Cake and I sponged some more Crumb Cake around the tiny banner.  I love the red, green and black together.  I also got a chance to play with my new Polka Dot Parade DP.  It's all so cute!  I love, love, love polka dots.

Here's a list of supplies I used....
Stamps: Build a Blossom
Paper: Black, White, Polka Dot Parade and In Color DP
Ink: Real Red, Pear Pizzaz, Crumb Cake, Black
Accessories: Build a Blossom Punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch, Square Lattice EF, Framelits Labels die, Framelits Bitty Banners die
Thanks for taking a peek!
