Textured Floral, Around the Bend, Friendship Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello. I'm glad you are here today. I have a fun and easy card to share with you. I am SO pleased with they way this card turned out. I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest using products from "Simon Says" stamps.  I used what I had and I am very pleased with the outcome. Please read on to see how I made this card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock. I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock for the inside.

Next I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Stargazing" 12" x 12" package. I tried to cut from an area on the sheet that had the darkest image. I wanted my background to be pretty dark. I taped this piece to the front of the card base.

I took a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Basic White card stock and die cut the largest stitched circle from the "Stylish Shapes" set. I made sure it was cut on the upper part of the card. I didn't have a current large oval like the original card used so I had to go with the circle and in going with the circle I knew I wouldn't have room for the words in the opening so moving the circle up made room for the words at the bottom. 

After cutting the circle, I stamped the words from the "Textured Floral" set using black Memento ink.

The branch is from the "Textured Floral" set and was die cut using a scrap piece of Basic White card stock.

The little flowers are from the "Around the Bend" set and were cut from a scrap piece of Flirty Flamingo. I cut some small pieces of Daffodil Delight card stock and glued them to the backs of the flowers. Then the flowers were set in place with a small dot of glue.

Next the stem was glued to the circle and a Dimensional was put on top of that. Dimensionals were added all around the back piece and where each little flower is. I turned the piece over and set it in place on top of the DSP.

Wink of Stella was added to the flowers and the card was done.

I REALLY like how this card turned out. 

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's card,
