Botanical Builders for Freshly Made Sketches and Color Throwdown

This week, Color Throwdown's colour swatch reminded me of my hanging baskets by my front door, with all these lovely pastel florals:

Such pretty colours! I chose to use Pink Pirouette, Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron to match the colour swatch. It was a great opportunity to get out my Botanical Builder Framelits again. And, as it would happen, Freshly Made Sketches had the perfect layout for this card:

So put it all together and you get a floral cascade with a die cut sentiment:

  • There's no actual stamping on this card. I used ink only to sponge the centers of my larger flowers with Pumpkin Pie.
  • I made use of all the flower framelits in the Botanical Builder set when I was coming up with this bouquet. It's the uniqueness of the die cuts that make them such a good seller. They are so versatile. I used the Precision Base Plate in my Big Shot for the thinlits in the set.
  • The Hello You Thinlits provided the thanks sentiment, using Pumpkin Pie cardstock, quick and easy!
  • And it's back to the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack for the background DSP here. I do seem to gravitate toward the script design a lot.

There is nothing in this design that is retiring, but don't forget that you only have until May 31 to get any of the retiring products. Don't be disappointed:

You can view the retiring products for sale in my Online Store.
