I used My Favorite Things Flashy Florals for my card today, I haven't had that set out in too long I forgot how much I love those blooms. I die cut my sentiment from the dies that go along with the stamp set in black. Then I stamped and die cut the large and small flower with their respective detail stamps first. I placed the flowers on a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" top folding card base to get an idea of where I wanted to put the sentiment and the flowers to give me an idea of where I wanted to stamp my leaves. Once the leaves were stamped I adhered the rest of the images to the card, adding the smaller flower with foam tape for dimension. Last step was to add a few clear, Stickles filled sequins.

Beautiful card, Tracey! Those blooms are so pretty in those colors. I do like how you've kept it CAS, too. The black die cut sentiment really works well on your card. I should pull out those stamps again, too, especially after seeing this gorgeous card! Bev
