Layered Blossoms

This is my second post today! :~)
Scroll down for "Baby Love"
Hiya!
Pink and green, yummo!
I love that combo and I really loved making this card. So much so that I made 2 of them! hahahaha

 

I made my card 4.25" square.
My outside sentiment is from Petite Pairs. I stamped another flower image on the inside and stamped "Thanks so much" from the Three Little Words set.
I layered the middle flower (Mixed Bunch set by SU!) twice. It's stamped in Lucky Limeade, then layered in Pretty in Pink, then in Soft Suede with a little pearl middle. I am addicted to punching with circles and then matching the punched out piece with the original stamped image. I guess that's my "technique" of choice right now! :)

These cards will go to the two ladies that helped me so much at the Valentine's Banquet we had at church Saturday night. They saw I was overwhelmed and on the verge of a panic attack (LOL) and came to my rescue. They are truly dear, sweet ladies and I'm happy they are in my life.

Challenges:
Today's CAS challenge over at SCS
Our Creative Corner ~ Best Friend and include a flower
CAS-ual Fridays ~ Paper piecing (#39)

Thank you so much for visiting today!

Until next time...
Blessings...

Beautiful! I would have helped you with the banquet if you were giving away cards this pretty! LOL! Congrats on your weight loss goal - mine is 50 and I have only lost 2 lbs so far (actually 16 if you count the times I lost it and gained it back - sad, sad, sad).

Oh, how pretty! (This is one of my favorite color combinations). You've inspired me to get out this stamp set and try using it again!

PS- Thank you so much for the images and embellishments you sent me for my birthday. That was so thoughtful of you!
