Topiary Seasons


Hi everyone!  I'm excited to share one of my favorite new release images available today at the Doodle Pantry.  My card features the beautiful sunflower image from the Topiary Seasons digital stamp set.


My card base is Summer Sun layered with Kraft cardstock then patterned paper stitched around the edges. The shadow layer is Kraft cardstock finished on one side using the Scallop Dot Edge Punch. The image was printed on PTI White and colored in using copic markers. I layered it on Summer Sun and finished one side using the Scallop Dot Edge Punch. To embellish the card I wrapped brown satin ribbon around the card base and added a matching bow in front.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
