Petite Petals Mother's Day Card

My "Moonlight" paper stack is pretty full, so I thought I would relieve it of a sheet or two.  Well, I was able to relieve it of one!!!  I love these stacks, but much like the 12 x 12 DSP, I don't use as much as I wish to.  I need to make more of an effort to use it up.  Or at least put a bigger dent in the package!!

Today I thought I would play with the "Petite Petals" set.  It's not that I don't play with it enough, I do play with it and I do like playing with it!!!  I wanted to make a simple card and this one was very simple.  The use of decorative paper and stamp sets with matching punches makes for quick and simple cards.

The Modern Label punch is soon to be retiring, which makes me sad.  I hope something else comes out that will take it's place.  I do like Framelits but punches are SO much quicker because I don't have to line anything up on my Big Shot and I don't have to add any layers of platforms.  I just grab the punch, line it up, and punch!  Now on the other side of the Framelits, I like them because I can cut out fabric and felt with them!!!  

I used the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set for the words.  

The flowers were stamped using Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey ink.  They were punched out and set in place using Dimensionals.  I added a pearl to the center of each one.  I used the postage stamp punch on the back layer of the flower image. Those were punched using Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey card stock.

This was a fun card to make, though I am not thrilled with it.  The background is a bit too busy for me.  To improve on this I think I should have added the decorative paper on top of some Whisper White card stock.  Then I could have just stamped the words on the white below the ribbon.  That would break up that busy background.  What do you think??

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
