A Petite Petals and Teeny Tiny Wishes Birthday Card

I wanted to make a card using a piece of Lost Lagoon. It's such a pretty color.  I have some pieces plus a whole package left and it's going to be retiring in a little over a month.  SO sad, but I knew that going into it!!

For my fun card I took a half sheet of the Lost Lagoon.  I added a layer of Basic Black that measures 3-1/4" x 3-1/4".  I cut a piece of Whisper White to measure 3" x 3".  I punched out 4 leaves from the retiring "Bird Builder" punch.  I am going to miss that punch, mostly for the leaves.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there will be a new leaf punch or die. 

I stamped the "Petite Petals" flowers using Lost Lagoon ink. I punched them out with the little matching flower end. Fortunately this set is not retiring, nor is the punch!!

I set the flowers in place using Dimensionals.  In the center of each flower I added some enamel dots.  Those will be retiring too.  I am actually trying hard to use up some of these fun supplies.  I don't know why I hang onto them until they are close to retiring.  I could be using them all along.  Sometimes I forget about them and sometimes I just don't want to use them because I'm afraid of using them up.  Now that would only result in buying more if I REALLY liked them.  SO what's the issue here Wanda????  LOL  A moment on the analyst's couch might be in order here !!! LOL 

Okay, back to the rest of my card.  The words are from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set (which is not retiring, but the "Word Window Punch" and the "Label Punch" are.  How am I going to make pretty layers without those two punches???).  

This was a fun set to make.  It was super easy and quick to make.  If you need a fun quick card, this is the way to go.  This would be a very pretty Mother's Day, Get Well, or Thinking of You card too.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
