Pick a Petal







Sharon's aka "no time to stamp" is having her Friday challenge today and it's all about - PIERCING!!!

Uh....I love piercing!!! And of course she also likes it to be simple....- I like that too!!!

I just talked about this "Pick a Petal" Set with my good friend Simone yesterday....and also about the matching Brass Template...so when I started looking for an idea - I just grabbed it and created this card.

I stamped the dotted petal from this set with Pumpkin Pie Ink and stamped the lined petal on top with the Taken with Teal Ink. I also punched out a 1" circle and centered a Pewter
Jumbo Eyelet with a Pumpkin Rhinestone Brad in it.

Then I used the "Pick a Petal" Brass Template and started embossing around the petals. This Template also has the piercing guide for the petal. Pls see the catalog page #187 for details.....

I layered the image onto a Taken with Teal CS and no, no, no I did not do it...no Stampin Dimensional - he,he,he!!! Aren't you proud of me???

I added the Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain Ribbon and stamped the sentiment from the "It's your Birthday" Set.....~TFL~!!!

Have a great weekend!!!
