CCMC Summer Edition Saturday Challenge-Week 2

Are we having fun yet? For those of you that are visiting me today because you signed up for the Summer Edition of Create with Connie & Mary.....welcome to my blog! Everyone else, thanks again for stopping in! I hope you have enjoyed all the projects we had lined up for you during week #2. Today's card is a card based on the sketch provided below:

I decided to change it up a little and use "paper snipped flowers" in place of two of the squares:

As you can see in my card, I used the "Fabulous Florets" in two different ways. One for the background of my cardstock layer and second as layered items on my card. What is so great about this stamp set is that some of the flowers are lined images while others are full color images.

TIP: When cutting out your flowers, first of all, Stampin' Up!'s Paper Snips are the very best scissors I've ever owned! While you are snipping around the edges of your flowers, leave just a smidgen of white so that the flowers "pop" when layered over colored cardstock.

If you've never experimented in layering the Decorative Label Punch, click HERE to view my tutorial on how to complete this look.
