I dragged my feet on this challenge all week...I think mostly because I don't usually buy flower dies as I really like to fussy cut. My mojo has also been missing a bit this week too, but I made myself go through my dies yesterday, and I actually had more than I thought that I could use. So anyway, I spent time cutting out a bunch of flowers and leaves yesterday and put my card together this morning. Here's what I came up with:
I used flowers and leaves from Doodlie-Do, Songbirds, and Friendly Flowers and embossed the flowers in white and also the background with the Cover Up: Quatrefoil stamp. A small piece of Hawaiian Shores Pattern Paper was added to the bottom of my card just to add a bit more color.
My leaves were stamped with Green Parakeet and Hawaiian Shores ink, and I also cut one of the Songbird branches with Hawaiian Shores cs.
I used pop dots to raise the centers of my white flowers to give a bit more dimension, and then tucked my leaves underneath. I also used the Make It Market Mini: Garden Gild and Button Stacks for the centers of two of the flowers. I finished off with a seam binding ribbon in white, a button, and a few iridescent sequins. And I definitely have a lot of die cut pieces leftover to make a few more cards!
