A Flower Shop Petite Petals Crazy about You Mother's Day Card

Today's card took a little more time to make than the cards I have been making lately.  It was fun to just sit at my worktable and play for a while.  Plus I'm doing laundry so I just HAVE to be down in my workroom.  You never know, the washer may go off balance and I need to be there!  Right?  LOL  It works for me.  

I like the looks of this card, I just wish I would have made the Flower Shop flowers out of a more solid image.  They look too light and faded.  I used three different colors for them too.  The focal layer is Crisp Cantaloupe so of course one of the flowers had to be stamped in that color of ink.  Then I used Tangerine tango and Calypso Coral.  

The centers were stamped using Hello Honey ink and the Petite Petals stamp set.  The center of the flowers are the Candy Dots.  See, from the center to the Petite Petals flower, the colors are bright and vivid and then the Flower Shop comes in there and kind of drabs it up.  It's still pretty but it could be improved upon!

I used a piece of Daffodil Delight ribbon since I didn't have any Hello Honey.  It blended well enough to use it.  

The words are from the Crazy about You set.  It's one of those sets that I forgot I had.  I LOVE word sets and it's always fun to get new ones.  I hope this isn't going to replace Teeny Tiny Wishes.  There's no Modern Label like punch to go with it.  Or even a Word Window punch for it to fit in. Maybe Stampin' Up! will come up with wider ones!!! Wouldn't that be fun?  I won't get rid of my other two or the Teeny Tiny Wishes set.  

Okay, back to my card.  I used a paper doily in the background.  I actually used two together.  One was too thin.  I probably could have used 3 because I can still see a through the two.  But I got the concept across with two.  I stamped the Crazy about You "Happy" on it using Tangerine Tango ink.  And the "Mother's Day" words were stamped in the same color ink.  

It was an easy card to make, it just took a little time to stamp and punch and layer.  But it was SO worth it. I do like how it turned out.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
