Get Well Floral Card

I mentioned yesterday how much I've been enjoying the Pop-up Posies Designer Kit and I've used it for today's card as well.  This time I've used only the punched out flowers and nothing else.  This whole kit is so versatile, and I seem to be using bits and pieces of it separately - not all of it together as it's shown in the Summer Mini Catalog.  Wish I could get the different elements of the kit separately because I've just about used up the Pool Party flower used in today's project.  Now let's see just what that project is...

Stamps:  Mixed Bunch and Delightful Dozen
Ink:  Pool Party and Island Indigo
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Island Indigo, Whisper White cs, and Subtles Collection Paper Stack
Accessories:  Pop-up Posies Designer Kit, Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack, Blossom Punch, Extra-Large Oval Punch, Boho Blossoms Punch, Sponge Daubers, and Glue Dots
I like the play of different designs and colors used in the layers here.   It all draws your eyes to the sentiment and flower as you want it to.  Can you see all the layers on the flower?  First the Mixed Bunch flower is stamped on white cs with Pool Party ink, punched out with coordinating punch, then sponged on the edges.  The next layer is just one of the Pop-up Posies from the kit.  This is sponged with Pool Party ink also.  Next comes a Boho Blossoms punched flower from Island Indigo cardstock.  Lastly is one of the free buttons that come in the Sale-A-Bration Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack.  Don't all those pieces work well together?

The ribbon from the same Sale-A-Bration freebie is used across the card to tie it all together.  Don't you love it when you can make good use of the free Sale-A-Bration items, and they add the perfect finishing touches?  That seems to be what has happened with this card.  Hope you enjoyed this idea and it gives you more ideas to try on your own.  Thanks for stopping in again today.  I appreciate any comments you share with me.  Have a fun, creative weekend and get stamping!    Sharon
