PPA 195, PAL's Paper Arts challenge

First, I have to say how sorry I am I have posted in so long. I'm struggling with some sciatica and I can't stand very long at all so I haven't been able to get cards done like usual.
I'm trying to do it sitting down now, but my room is set up for me to stand so it is slow going.

Really nice colors this time:
Looks like spring to me!   Come on over and play with us, it really is a great way to get involved and up your skills.
I used my new rotary cutting adaptor for my trimmer to do the little wave edge. There are different cuts you can get for it, and it's as simple as taking out one little cartridge and sliding the other inside. You can't get cut, I love that.

I used Simply Sketches for my leaves, this is a hostess set  so if you like it get it before the catalog expires, I've used the heck out of it this year and am really going to miss it when it expires.

The Happy Watercolor set gave me the sentiment and the little blops in So Saffron around the leaves.
I used the Versamark pad and white embossing powder on the image from Backyard Basics, then used the die in the bundle to cut it out.

I added 3 candy dots for bling.

Thanks for stopping by, click on any of the photos below and you will be taken to my store to get more info, order or whatever you need.

This is an absolutely LOVELY card! The watercolor dots are such a perfect accent, and I just love that wavy piece of Rose Red - those cutting cartridges are great, aren't they? Thanks for playing along at Pals Paper Arts this week!
