A Garden in Bloom Friendship Card

I have a friend that I was thinking about off and on all day today so I thought I would make a card and get it off in the mail to her tomorrow.  I used the "Garden in Bloom" set to make this card.

The base of my card is Basic Black. The next layer is Pear Pizzazz and then Whisper White on top.  I stamped the flowers and cut them out.  I used Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, and Pumpkin Pie inks on the flowers.  I had to fussy cut them out, there are no dies or punches for these flowers.  I also stamped and fussy cut the leaves too.  I scrunched them together and liked the way they landed so I taped them together on the backside.  Then I used double sided tape on the back to set them in place on the card.  But before I set them in place I cut a 1" x 3-1/2" piece of decorative paper.  I added a little strip of Pear Pizzazz on top of the decorative paper.  I am thinking now that I should have used Basic Black for that little strip.  

The words are from the "Garden in Bloom" set.  It's always fun when there's words in the set that fit what you want to say without having to find another set to use.  Though I don't mind combining sets (when I'm not feeling too lazy to get up and find one!!! LOL).  I have used this set a few times and am looking forward to using it again.  It's got SO many possibilities!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
