Prickley Pear Design Team Monday!

Happy Monday!! Hope you all had a great start to the week. Since its Monday, it's time for another Prickley Pear Monday card :)

Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!;  stamps: Prickley Pear( Clearly Beautiful Flowers Stamps Set ); Dies: Cheery Lyn(Fanciful flourish) inks: Momento (Tuxedo Black), Distress Ink(Walnut stain); embellishment:  Pie Lane Self Adhesive Crystals; coloring medium: Faber Castell Markers
So as I said HERE, I hate throwing away pretty (and expensive) paper and my heart breaks with the amount of paper that is wasted  with die cutting. So I always make it a point to die cut keeping in mind that I can use both the negative and the positive of die cuts :)

I inked the edges of the negative die-cut panel very lightly with walnut stain distress ink to give it more definition and then adorned the beautiful flourish with some gorgeous flowers from the Clearly Beautiful Flowers Stamps Set and to top it off added the various different self adhesive crystals from Pie Lane(I love that they have so many different shapes and colors in those pretty crystals :)) As an after thought I also did a little faux stitching along the edge.

It looked like an all occasion card so I left it without sentiment. I can now save it in my stash and pull it out for the right occasion :)

Don't forget to check out what the rest of the PPRS team created this week!

Hope you like it! Thanks for visiting!
