Send Gratitude with Pressed Flowers PPA167

Ever since I saw the Simply Pressed Clay (130685) and Molds (131272), I've had this card 
stuck in my head.
(It turned out to be a winner! See below)

The Pals Paper Arts Challenge  were the perfect excuse to put my thought to paper 
and create this card. 

You will LOVE, LOVE how EASY it is to make these fantastic flowers. 
Check out my previous post with detailed Simply Pressed Clay instructions and a video, HERE!

These flowers were made plain, and then I used the sponge dauber to add color straight from my ink pads.  You'll notice a lighter and a darker Crisp Cantaloupe flower.  It's easy to vary the amount of ink you color with.

If you follow along, you know one of my favorite embossing folders is Perfect Polka Dots (117335)
It goes with anything and makes everything better!

Little Leaves Sizzlits (114511) is another favorite of mine.

The Harvest of Thanks Stamp Set (c 131739) or (w 131736), happened to be laying out from a previous FALL card I had posted. (See Here)  
Using  the gratitude stamp with Coastal Cabana, gives no hint of it being from a Fall set.

This little gratitude banner is cut out quickly with Bitty Banners Framelits (129267)

I popped everything up on dimensionals an added a few leaves inside.

Very quick and very easy!  

My grandchildren were enjoying "Pressing Flowers" this week.  It's a fun craft for anyone!

I was a chosen as a
 Pals Paper Arts Artist Pick Winner
 for the PPA 167 Color Challenge



Make it a CREATIVE day!
