Blossom Party

This is a birthday card I made for our youngest daughter, Mary. She turned 37 on July 10th. She's our baby and always will be no matter how old she gets. She loves flowers and has her yard just filled with all kinds. I thought she would appreciate having some flowers she didn't have to water.
I couldn't wait to get my hands on some of the new Big Shot Dies and tonight I sat down and played. All the flowers and the two Top Notes are Stampin' Up! Dies.
Products Used:
Card base Certainly Celery; Lovely Lilac; Whisper White for the Top Notes; Blossom Party flowers; Lovely Lilac; Pale Plum; and Orchid Opulence. pages 156-157
Pale Plum ink for butterfly page...156
Certainly Celery ink for leaves page...156
Rhinestone Brads; Circle Ice page179
Stamp Sets: For All You Do page 118 ...Butterfly
Great Friend page 107...Leaves
Oval All page 125...phrase
Blossom Party Die page...202
Top Note page...198
This was a fun, easy and quick way to make a card. Very little stamping. I just started running card stock through the Big Shot in different colors of purple until I thought I had a enough to make some flowers. I just layered them on top of each other and secured them with the Circle Ice Brads. I stamped the leaves on the Whisper White Top Note first and then attached the flowers. I stamped the butterfly next and finally the phrase. I really like Certainly Celery with Pale Plum, Lovely Lilac and Orchid Opulence and the Whisper White just breaks up the colors so the flowers pop off the page.
Check back this week, I will post some cards made with Stampin' Up! new stamps, papers and dies.
Thanks for looking.
Happy Stampin'
