Daydream Medallions - PPA217

PPA217 Sketch Challenge

I love the richness of the Blackberry Bliss with Silver embossing and Silver Foil, so pretty together! I embossed (silver) inside of the large dots using a pencil eraser dipped into VersaMark and then stamped and embossed. It gave a very random circle, very cool! Just For You, is the sentiment on today's card.

Daydream Medallions stamp set has so many beautiful shapes and sizes, choosing is the hardest part! I carried the large polka dot embossing to a strip on the inside and also on the envelope flap. Thanks for stopping by!

PPA215 - Summer Silhouettes

For this week's PPA Color Challenge, I used the Summer Silhouettes stamp set. I love these pretty colors together! A nice vignette of flowers, tied off with a pretty bow. This says summer to me!

Below is an inset picture to show the paper-piercing detail. A heart was paper-pierced on the envelope back flap to carry on the theme. I added Strawberry Slush cardstock, embossed with the Fancy Fan embossing folder, on the inside, top. It adds a little pop of color behind the paper piercing on the front.
