PPA 95

Hello!  Thank you for checking in today for my PPA 95 challenge card.  This week's challenge is ....Brads!  I first started this card for part of my upcoming card class, but decided to incorporate brads into the card, so I can submit it to the PPA challenge.  So here is another Beyond the Garden card!


I used the large scallop punch and pleated two Beyond the Garden DSP punches and adhered them together.  After I finished the card, I think that three punches would of made a fuller flower, I will keep that in mind for next time.  A piece of retired Wild Wasabi ribbon made a great stem and leaves.



I used one scallop circle punch in Wild Wasabi and crimped, crumpled, separated and sponged the layers to make an underside to the pleated flower, just to give it a little dimension.  When working with DSP, make sure to have a light hand since it is thinner than card stock.



A punched 3/4 circle of DSP was used in the center as well as a Circle Ice rhinestone brad.  The Filigree and flower brad seemed to go together very well, and is substantial enough just to have one set.   The Beyond the Garden DSP was embossed with the Framed Tulip EF (which is still available), just to give it a little notice.



Can't forget about the sentiment!  The Four Frames stamp set and decorative label punch duo is a must have, it is stamped in Pacific Point, a small oval punch in wild wasabi is stamped with the Friend stamp from Just Believe, and another small filigree brad is used to dress it up.  So what do you think?  Is there enough brads to make the challenge?  Please leave me a comment to know what you think!    If you are interested in any of these items, please use the shop with me button at the top of the screen 24/7.  Thanks for stopping by, enjoy!
