Pansy Petals for #PP580

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card was inspired by Anne Marie's Sketch from the Paper Players.  I can't wait for the early Pansy's to show up at the garden centre, so in the meantime I'll create a Pansy card.  

Please click on either my card or the #PP580 image to visit the Paper Players blog post and enjoy the inspiration!

*  There's really no *Trix to creating this card, it's all about the layers from the fabulous Pansy Petals DSP #155807.  The centre focal Pansy bunch was fussy cut from the DSP too.  However, check out the Savings are in Bloom! image at the bottom of this post to get the coordinating Pansy Patch Bundle #155674 at a 20% discount in March. 

*  The label from the Scalloped Contours Dies #155560 is enhanced a bit.  The card base is Soft Succulent, there is a slim Evening Evergreen border around the DSP, and the band is Soft Succulent.  The *Trix is to blend a bit of Soft Succulent onto the label with blending brushes.  This Trix, just provides a soft colour wash that flows with the rest of the Soft Succulent colour throughout the card.  

*  The sentiment is stamped in Evening Evergreen ink from the Art Gallery Stamp Set, #154421.  Add in the 2021 - 2023 In Color Jewels #155571 for a little pop of bling.
