If Friends were Flowers

... I'd pick you.  Love this sentiment I recently purchased (C.C. Designs).  It's part of a stamp set along with flowers, watering can, etc.  I am making another card for yesterday's SCS "Ways To Use It" Challenge (WT377 - Let's get negative! - use a negative die-cut).  This time I used Spellbinder's nesties to build a negative oval to highlight the sentiment.  I also added some fun felt flowers that I bought from my local $1 store.  I know I mentioned it recently, but I love my $1 store.  I had been thinking about making a Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie flower card - the colors are so fabulous together ... and when I saw these flowers, I had to buy them.  I gave them a little "umph" by adding a few layers ... punching out centers with my Boho Blossom punch (I used "extra" felt flowers for the punch-outs).  They looked so sweet, but needed something more ... TWINE!

I'm also entering this card for this week's challenge at Simon Says - "Anything Goes" - gotta' love that!  Hope you like this bright and cheerful card!

"If Friends Were Flowers"

Stamps:  Watering Can Logos (C.C. Designs)
Paper:  White cardstock (C.C. Designs); Melon Mambo (SU!)
Ink:  Gumball Green (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Ovals, Pink Sorbet twine (The Twinery), Boho Blossoms punch, adhesives, glue dots, and dimensionals

I mounted all the pieces, popping up the top panel with the oval cut-outs.  I layered the felt flowers (and centers that I punched), and used a rolled up glue dot to add a twine bow to each flower.  I also added a flower to the inside of the card for fun.
