Springtime Hello

I had bought the Springtime Hello set but only used the bumble bee in it.  So today I thought I would whip up a birthday card using the pretty flower image in it.  

I colored the flower in using markers and I huffed on it before I stamped it.  

The colors I used here are Strawberry Slush and Pistachio Pudding card stock and markers. Plus I used the Daffodil Delight marker in the center of the flowers.  

The words are from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set.  

The top two layers are set in place using Dimensionals.

Punching the hole with the layer is a bit tricky but once you figure out how to do it, it's rather easy.  I add a little mark of tape on the card stock where I think the hole is going to be punched at.  It's ok if you don't get it exact.  You mostly want the card stock and the decorative paper to stay together so you can punch them.  Line them up as you would for a layer.  Then take the smaller punch (here I used the 1-1/4" circle punch) and punch out both pieces at once.  Next take the decorative paper and the 1-3/8" circle punch and punch out a little ring.  Try to center it.  But before you punch place a piece of copier paper behind it or it won't punch nice.  Once it's punched tape it in place on top of the card stock.  It's easy to do but you do need to practice with it a little before venturing into the good papers and card stock!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
