Thank You CCMC351

We have a fun and unique sketch today at Create with Connie and Mary!  I took the opportunity to use some of the pretty Flowerpot Designer Series Paper in honor of spring!!  Yes, my taxes are turned in, my hosta lillies are up and the grass is turning green!  Time for some flowers!

I used the large solid flower from the Flower Patch set for my focal image behind the sentiment, which is from the Let Your Hair Down Hostess set!  Such a fun set and I love the font used for it.  The flower and leaves were diecut with the coordinating Flower Fair framelits.

The white background actually has tiny green polka dots so I added more polka dots with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  The two patterned papers are primarily Garden Green and there is also a triangle of Daffodil Delight.

I carefully added a slender edging of Daffodil Delight to the sentiment banner for emphasis; I cut the ends of the banner with the Hexagon Punch.  Three small Basic Pearls in the center of the flower are the finishing touch!

Stamps:  Flower Patch and Let Your Hair Down (Hostess) sets
Inks:  Tangerine Tango, Garden Green, Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight
Paper:  Flowerpot DSP; Whisper White, Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight
Accessories:  Basic Pearls, Stamping Sponge, Flower Fair framelits, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Big Shot.

I love how you have magnified a Tangerine Tango flower and brought it into focus. It is as if it came to life out of that designer paper! Love this!

Margaret, I love your card especially the way you did the background with the embossed paper. And the way you cut the sentiment is so clever!

Love it! I have been wondering what to do with the bright floral DSP and this card is don't need much because it's overwhelming...just the perfect touch/balance.

I love that bold orange flower Margaret and the big sentiment - perfectly centre stage against the white embossed background. Great use of the accent papers too - I love the Flowerpot papers and they are perfect for a card like this where there won't overwhelm.
